Chuck Simpson, Upstate’s director of campus activities and special projects, captained a team for this year’s AIDS Walk/Run that raised more than $38,000 for the event Sunday, June 2. He sent thanks to more than 50 Upstate colleagues who contributed to his team, called Team Stumblers.
“The walk overall raised over $174,000 to benefit the programs/services of AIDS Community Resources. One hundred percent of the proceeds will stay local and benefit the programs/services in the nine-county Upstate New York region,” he says.
Team Stumblers was the No. 1 fundraising community team, raising $38,393 — so far. Donations are still coming in, he reports.
Simpson said in his thank-you to contributors: “I wanted to send these numbers to you not to brag, but to say that we couldn’t achieve what we achieved without the continued support of each and everyone of you.”
