Fighting a global pandemic with pennies.

Fighting a global pandemic with pennies. No one would finance Mooney, so he persevered at all cost. More than 1.2 million people in the US are living with HIV infection, and almost 1 in 8 are unaware. 35 million people worldwide have the virus.
Now Mooney is a mere thirty miles from reaching New York's Brooklyn Bridge, after rowing over five-thousand miles. His quest has taken a decade and four boats. He has been shipwrecked for 14 days in the middle of Atlantic Ocean in a life raft, a shark damaged his boat, fatigue, endured 80 pound weight loss, attack by pirates and a cypress stump put a hole in his boat.
For what - to get people tested four HIV.
