A thought experiment... during the upcoming Walk for AIDS is it
possible that one person will meet another who has HIV infection,
whether they know it or not, and have sex? Is it possible that
infection could be passed along to an uninfected person? Considering
statistical information on the spread of HIV, could it happen at least
one person after meeting another person during the AIDS walk will get
infected? Two people? Three people? Four people? More? How much money
is raised by the Walk for AIDS? How much does it cost for a person's
treatment from when HIV infection is detected until death?

Is it possible that the AIDS Walk will result in enough new cases of
HIV and AIDS to consume all the funds generated by the event?
