“Growing up in the DC area in which AIDS is more prevalent than anywhere else in the US…and working with pro athletes through my profession…has given me a great appreciation for everything athletes can do to help educate our population about HIV/AIDS prevention. It’s very exciting to think that what we are starting in DC has the potential to be life-changing for countless children in the future.”
