Timothy Ray Brown Memorial Campaign

Let’s Kick ASS (AIDS Survivor Syndrome) Palm Springs, HIV + Aging Research Project-Palm Springs (HARP-PS), Desert Healthcare District & Foundation and Until There’s A Cure Foundation partnered with the National AIDS Memorial to raise funds to place a boulder in Timothy Ray Brown’s honor at the National AIDS Memorial Grove in San Francisco, and a park bench in the Wellness Park at Ruth Hardy Park in Palm Springs. There will be a dedication ceremony for the park bench on Friday, May 7 at 12:00 PM on the north end of the Wellness Park (near the SE corner of Tachevah and Miraleste) in Palm Springs. Please join us to honor Timothy’s memory.

People feel better when engaged in social activity. LKA Palm Springs helps long-term survivors overcome isolation by creating social opportunity. From our popular monthly potlucks, thrice-monthly coffee socials, and our movie nights, to now establishing annual events such as our June 5, Long-term Survivors Day reception and our Thanksgiving Day feast, LKAPS benefits its members through engagement.


Our chapter is growing and that’s great! We have volunteer opportunities available for people who would like to be more involved. Desire to help is what’s most important here,
