Dear Dr. Bonner:

On Behalf of the Community AIDS partnership of the Capitol Region, we would like to thank you for Adirondack Area Network's $500 sponsorship of AIDSWalk 2001.

Over 2,000 walkers came together for AIDSWalk2001, raising over $140,000. This amount was matched on a "one for two" basis by the National AIDS Fund, resulting in a total of $210,000 being made available for distribution to local AIDS service organizations. AIDSWalk 2001 also increased awareness of HIV/AIDS in our community and reemphasized the need for increased funding and support.

We have enclosed a Day of the Walk Program and some copies of press coverage from the day of the walk. Your company was also repeatedly thanked as an event sponsor at the Awards Ceremony on the day of the walk.

Once again, thank you for partnering with us on this successful event. We are deeply appreciative of your support and look forward to working with you again in 2002.
