For a third year, The New School will form a team to support AIDS Walk New York, helping people in our community struggling with HIV and AIDS. Here are some statistics that may give you pause:

  • 40,000 to 60,000 people are newly infected with HIV in the United States every year.
  • 50 percent of those newly infected are under the age of 24.
  • 25 percent of those newly infected do not know it.
  • New York accounts for approximately 18 percent of all HIV cases in the United States.

Join The New School team 1463 on Sunday, May 16, at 9:00 a.m. in Central Park. To register to walk or to donate online, go to the AIDS Walk website. Volunteers should contact any of the following New School Committee members: Laura Cosgrove, Office of Finance and Business; Katie Scheidt, Office of Information Technology; Sheila Slaughter, Office of Human Resources; Adam Reale, Design and Construction; and Stephen Serwin, Raymond Fogelman Library.
