Goree Challenge IV - 5,000 mile transatlantic row from the Canary Islands to New York
Spirit of Malabo Send-off Ceremony December 1, 2013 World AIDS Day
Spirit of Malabo Send-off Reception
It is through the contributions and commitment of all assisting Mr. Mooney with his humanitarian efforts that we can celebrate
the medical advances and show the sense of renewal many people living with AIDS/HIV have. Your commitment to better humanity,
underscores your message of compassion and spirituality.
I am honored to recognize the inspirational
work of Victor Mooney, the South African Arts International organization and all who have participated in this momentous occasion.
Best wishes for a wonderful event.
This is an important cause, as 240,000 of the 1.2 million people in the United States who have HIV are not aware of their
status. People who are not aware of their HIV positive status are disproportionately responsible for the 50,000 new infections
Thanks to the good works of SAAI, we will continue to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS
and seek to lower the number of those infected by HIV/AIDS in the future.
I salute the officers and members of SAAI as they send off the Spirit of Malabo, a 24 foot custom rowboat built in Brazil
and now docked in Brooklyn that will be transported to Las Palmas, Canary Islands where Founder/ Executive Director Mooney
will then row 5,000 miles to New York in an effort in the fight to encourage voluntary HIV testing.
I commend all the supporters of this mission for their part aiding the fight to combat the rapid spread of HIV. I wish Founder/
Executive Director Mooney much success in his voyage.
We wish you the best of luck with the ceremony, and with such an amazing cause.
