Team Scrubs AIDS Walk Guide

2008 General Hospital/Night Shift 2 team

I've put together all of the information related to the AIDS Walk LA fundraising and event all in one place. Please check back for updates

Message from Kimberly
It's that time of year again and I'm so excited to surpass last years goal. Thanks to your generosity and concerted efforts, last year we raised over 75,000. We were almost the top team and I'd like to make the top team this year! Jason and I look forward to this event every year and know that even in these hard times, with your help, we will be able to raise money for this worthy cause. So, let's put our heads together and be creative with fundraising. The team page is now up (GH Scrubs) and I will be checking in daily to see that the numbers get bigger and bigger!

Thank you so much for supporting the GH SCRUBS team and helping to fight HIV/AIDS.



Donate, and/or please feel free to sign up for the team (regardless of whether you walk)....ask your family and friends to donate under your name.

Kimberly has established a twitter account @whitewatercrew to pass on fundraising information for the months leading up to the walk.

The Fundraising Auctions:

The rules (per the Scrubs board):
The auctions will be set up as 48 hr a thons and done every Friday to Sunday (except for the set tour), running from 12pm PT to 12pm PT 48 hours later.

First let me explain the difference between bidding and donating:
Bidding is where you bid on the item but the money exchange happens at the end of the auction and not throughout the auction itself. Donating is where you might donate at the beginning, middle and end of an auction for a chance to win something and then the highest donation would win the item. For instance, some members may have already donated directly to Jason and Kimberly's team page therefore the money has already been exchanged.

What you will be doing during each auction is
bidding on a chance to win the item. If you would like to bid on the item, you will send me a PM saying this is how much you would like to bid. Then I will update the thread/send an email saying how much someone is willing to bid on the script and then the highest bid at the end of the auction will donate directly to Jason and Kimberly's team page and send me a confirmation email after they have donated.

Throughout each auction, you will be bidding on the chance to win the item but the only person who will donate directly to Jason and Kimberly's team page will be the winner of the item and that person will be the highest bidder at the end of the 48 hours.

You will send bids via PM on the Scrubs board or send an email to at least 5 minutes prior to the end of the auction. The highest bidder will be notified at the end of the auction that they won and will be directed at that time to make the donation to Kimberly and Jason's team page

Day of the event information

The AIDS Walk will be held on Sunday October 18th in West Hollywood. The AIDS Walk begins and ends in West Hollywood Park at San Vicente Boulevard, between Melrose Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard. Walkers should enter the venue at the intersection of San Vicente Boulevard and Santa Monica Boulevard to turn in their funds (map and directions). The walk is 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) and takes roughly 2-3 hours to complete.

The schedule will be:
8:30 a.m. - Sign-In Opens
9:15 a.m. - Aerobic Workout
9:30 a.m. - Opening Ceremony Begins
10:00 a.m. - Walk Begins!

For those wanting to walk with our group, please meet in front of the stage after the opening ceremony after the majority of the walkers go by. Cellphone service was sketchy last year, so please keep that in mind when trying to coordinate meeting up with members of the group. If you'd like to give us a headsup that you'll be there and to look for you, send an email to me (Amy) at Please do not expect to walk with GH talent.
