My name is Richard Brodsky and I am President of the Richard M. Brodsky Foundation. Welcome to the Foundation’s 10th annual 5K AIDS / Cancer Run / Walk in America.  As you will notice, this website is about much more than a 5K; it is about changing and saving lives. It is about daring you to get off your behind, putting down the TV clicker, and facing each day knowing that YOU are starting over. You’ve been granted that second chance, that third chance, whatever.

Your mission for the day is to believe in yourself. Buy, borrow, or beg for a pair of running shoes. Next, call your doctor and tell him that “I’m taking up running, am I healthy enough?” If he says, “NO,” then tell him, “I’m taking up walking.” If he still says no, find another doctor who will have the confidence to believe in you. Or invite your doctor to participate in the 5K as a way of showing his support for you. FOR THIS ONE DAY ONLY, June 11, 2017, you have an opportunity to be part of history. If this 11th annual 5K / AIDS Cancer Run / Walk is a success, more events will follow in a different American city every few months. There are so few 5K AIDS / Cancer events in America. The Foundation’s mission for the American 5K events is to help Americans living with HIV and cancer in the local counties where the 5K is happening and to provide hope that their best years lie ahead. I’m 64 years young and I recently ran my fastest marathon (Nova Scotia, 2016) since being diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. And for children who are diagnosed with cancer, we want to reach out to these children and give them toys. Raising money for charity is not easy, but if we can appeal to corporate America and request items such as shampoo, laundry detergent, dish soap, deodorant, cologne or perfume, tissues, toothbrushes, toothpaste, sunscreen, and any free samples people and corporations will donate—these items, in their original wrapping, packaged nicely in a basket could be presented to people living with HIV and cancer during their hospital stay or upon leaving a hospital or attending an organized meeting of AIDS sufferers or cancer survivors. For further information about who will receive these baskets, click on the link, Who We Support. If you would like to donate any of the items listed above please visit the link, Product Donation.
