Care Resource honors attorney Richard Milstein for being AIDS Walk Miami's longtime top fundraiser

In advance of the annual AIDS Walk Miami on April 22, Care Resource has emailed the following spotlight on attorney Richard Milstein, the walk's top fundraiser:

"Every year I say the same thing: I hope this is the last year I have to walk." – Richard Milstein

Care Resource would like to take the time to recognize Richard Milstein for his continued generosity and support of AIDS Walk Miami.

Richard is our top fundraiser and a member of the Akerman Walk Team. It is his 21st year participating in the Walk and Richard hopes that very soon the epidemic of HIV/AIDS can be a thing of the past.

Twenty-one years ago, Richard became involved with AIDS Walk Miami through his friend Gary Keating (former director of the Miami Gay Men’s Chorus and educator) and his partner, Richard Schultz. At that time AIDS was at its height—decimating the gay and cultural communities. Now that HIV/AIDS is no longer a “gay disease,” Richard Milstein is not stopping. He knows that AIDS is affecting minority communities, whose voices are not always heard. Richard walks for everyone. With awareness continuing to grow for those in the gay community, Richard noted that he would like the system educated in such a way that gay males, who practice safe sex, may donate blood and marrow—the same as anyone else.

A graduate of University of Miami’s School of Law, Mr. Milstein handles high conflict, complex and high profile guardianship, trust, and probate matters, as well as being a Certified Mediator and participant in the first American Bar Association pilot project for Mediation. Among Mr. Milstein’s numerous awards, he has been inducted into the Miami-Dade College Hall of Fame, earned the Miami Herald Humanitarian Award through his work with the LGBT National Task Force and Spirit of Liberty Award from the People, along with being recognized in South Florida Business Journal as “Best in the Bar.” Richard Milstein and Eric Hankin were legally married in Iowa on March 12, 2010 and have been together now for 10 years.
