Team Step Forward led by Karlie Kloss and Jason Wu walked 6.2 miles and the 27th annual AIDS Walk New York. Their team ranked fifth among the top donors, raising almost $60,000 for the fight against AIDS. The event brought in a total of over 6 million!
“It was really empowering to be there with the 45,000+ other walkers – people of all ages and backgrounds from all over the city – who came out to be a part of something bigger than any one of us. I felt like a true New Yorker today!” says Karlie.
Jason also felt empowered by the experience saying, “We work so hard and get so wrapped up in our world. It’s easy to forget there’s something bigger out there. Today was really eye opening”. He stresses, “I certainly hope in my lifetime that we’ll be able to see a cure”
The duo is already planning for next year’s walk and they hope to take their team to number one!
