Scholars and Skadden Lawyers team up for AIDS Walk

Scholars and Skadden Lawyers team up for AIDS Walk

Two students from Cohort 4, Anastasia Regne and Tara Griffin, coordinated a Skadden Scholars AIDS Walk NY team that joined forces with volunteers from the Skadden law firm to raise money for this year’s AIDS Walk.  The AIDS Walk NY campaign helps to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and provides prevention and care services to over 15,000 men, women and children that are living with, or affected by, HIV/AIDS in New York City and the tri-state area. Together, the team raised almost $6,000 to be donated to the fight against AIDS. It rained from start to finish the day of the walk, yet it was a heartwarming day of camaraderie, commitment and hope. Soaked to the bone, the Skadden Team walked across the finish line with smiles on their faces.
