Until there's a cure, American oarsman, Victor Mooney believes it all starts with voluntary HIV testing. He has literally put his oars where his mouth is.

The culmination of a 5,000 mile transatlantic row, which Mr. Mooney of Flushing, Queens began in February 2014 from the coast of Africa will soon end at New York's Brooklyn Bridge.

The oarsman has lost one brother to AIDS and has another battling the virus.

Mr. Mooney's quest to row across the Atlantic Ocean took three failed attempts in a ten year period. He has faced many obstacles along the way, yet he never gave up. His boat will be donated to the United Nations as a symbol for the global fight against AIDS.
