Riley's help towards Pediatric AIDS!!

Riley Bui

Riley Bui

Growing up in a huge family full doctors, I’m surrounded by medical care. When I visited South Africa, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe during summer 2014, I saw health treatment is not readily accessible. My dad, sister, and I visited a school in Swaziland donating gifts and spending time with the children and teachers. Swaziland has one of the highest prevalence of HIV. After firsthand witnessing this, I want to give back and a prominent campus club does that. I’m proud to be selected after a lengthy application and competitive interview process to join the Pediatric AIDS Coalition (PAC) at UCLA :))

PAC at UCLA is the largest student-run yearlong philanthropic organization on the West Coast, that has raised over $5 million in its 18 year history to support HIV-affect children and mothers worldwide. PAC coordinates an iconic college tradition, Dance Marathon, a 26-hour event where we literally and figuratively “take a stand” against pediatric AIDS by dancing staying on our feet. It’s on the checklist a true Bruin should do before graduating! Hundreds of people fill the famous Pauley Pavilion, where our basketball games and gymnastic meets are held. Everyone pledges to raise $10/hour. Personally, I’m aiming for $25/hour. All proceeds are donated to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, the UCLA AIDS Institute, the Laurel Foundation, and the Pediatric AIDS Coalition at UCLA's direct services. I’d like your help fundraising and all costs are tax deductible <33

#EndTheStigma

With love,
