In 2002, shortly after the tragic death of Lorrie’s daughter Kimberly, she heard about an AIDS walk in Miami. She was still dealing with the devastation that Kim’s death brought to her life, but wanted to be a part of something that would help others dealing with this horrific disease.
Jackie, her friend, who also had adopted a child with HIV decided to form a team to join the walk. We wanted the team to be about our kids, and what they deal with on a daily basis, as well as the need for a cure. We came up with the name “Kidz 4 A Cure”. The first team consisted of 2 moms, their children. We bought visors and painted “Kidz 4 A Cure”, and a dream was born.
Several years later, AIDS Healthcare Foundation started Florida AIDS Walk in Fort Lauderdale. We walked in the inaugural walk, and Kidz 4 A Cure has been represented in every walk since then, raising over $50,000 for the cause!
AHF has been a real friend to Lorrie and her girls, providing love and support whenever they needed it. She am proud to be a part of helping them reach their goals.
Please join Kidz 4 A Cure as we support this life changing event
