Join Us, Help Us: AIDS Walk Los Angeles

With Our Own Martin Kutney on October 11th

Oct. 16, 2011 - Los Angeles, California, U.S. - Thousands of people participate in the 27th annual AIDS Walk Los Angeles in West Hollywood. (Credit Image: © Ringo Chiu/ZUMAPRESS.com)AIDS Walk Los Angeles, in it’s 31st year,  is a 10 kilometer (6.2 miles) walk that aims to raise awareness of  this terrible epidemic which affects our families and communities. It is also a wonderful opportunity to raise funds for research, care, and prevention. The Walk begins and ends in West Hollywood Park and usually takes about 2.5 hours to complete. Please join our very own Martin Kutney from our Sales Department in this walk or help him reach his fundraising goal. You can contribute by visiting his fundraising page HERE.

Marty, as we have grown to call him,  has been a faithful participant over the past six years in honor of his loving friend and partner, Jonathan. Marty is an ardent believer in that grain of sand that, collaboratively, becomes a heap for change. He hopes to inspire others to give and reap the benefits of helping the less fortunate.

The leadership, Mori Ben-Nissan and Ofir Haimof,  at Titan Solar Construction supports Martin’s heartwarming endeavor and pledges to ensure that his goal is reached through their own contributions.
