"Mtuy was running to draw attention to the sad plight of the very many thousands of otherwise healthy, strong and vibrant African youths who are falling prey to AIDS in their thousands every day. We believe that the truth about AIDS and its causes are not well known. Mtuy lost his brother to the virus in 2004 and is fighting to promote a more accurately informed awareness of AIDS. Ifyou should wish to work with Simon to join the cause please contact us to find out how you can help."
