Sprudge.com is honored to announce that we have been selected as official media sponsors of the 2013 AIDS Walk NY event. AIDS Walk happens Sunday, May 19th – we encourage our readers in the New York City area to follow @AIDSWalkNY on Twitter and consider registering yourself as a fundraiser, team leader, walker, or donor.

We think cafes and coffee enthusiasts in New York can make a huge impact by supporting AIDS Walk NY. Will your cafe be participating in the event? If so, please be sure to let us know – drop us a line at aidswalkny@sprudge.com. We’d love to see photos of our friends and colleagues in the New York City specialty coffee community marching in the walk on May 19th.

Things in the United States have gotten a lot better since the Walk started in 1985 – education, acceptance, medical breakthroughs – but the AIDS epidemic continues to rage in the developing world, and events like AIDS Walk NY help draw continued attention to an ongoing issue. They also pay homage toa history we must never forget. This is our second time sponsoring a major Walk event – Sprudge.com is also a proud media partner of AIDS Walk LA.
