San Carlos Apache ‘Warrior’ Ran Half-Marathon to Honor Natives Lost to AIDS
Isadore Boni, a San Carlos Apache member, was diagnosed with HIV and Hepatitis C in May 2002. In November 2004, he was diagnosed with AIDS. On January 20, 2013, he ran his fourth half-marathon at his personal best time of 2:15.
The HIV and AIDS survivor, who tours the state of Arizona as an educator for HIV prevention, ran PF Chang’s Rock & Roll 1/2 Marathon in Phoenix in memory of Native people who have died of AIDS complications and “to remind people living with AIDS that anything is possible,” he said.
