Ron FritzAIDS Foundation Chicago (AFC)’s Board and staff send our deepest condolences to Ron Fritz’s family and friends. Ron was a dedicated member of the AIDS Marathon Training Program and TEAM TO END AIDS (T2) for 15 years, in addition to fundraising for AIDS Run & Walk Chicago. His devotion to advocating and raising money for people living with HIV and AIDS began after the passing of his wife from AIDS-related complications.   

Always with a smile on his face, Ron joined T2 trainings and races not only to participate, but also to cheer on fellow athletes and support as a volunteer. In 2016, Ron was the recipient of the T2 Red Ribbon Club Silver Award, recognizing his efforts in raising more than $25,000 for T2. Throughout his life, Ron supported AFC with over $50,000 through various fundraising programs. As a member of the Sable Sherer Legacy Society, Ron has also made a lasting difference in the mission of AFC by including the organization in his estate planning.    

Ron will long be remembered for his positive, generous spirit and his dedicated advocacy for people living with HIV and AIDS.
