Project Runway’s Jack Mackenroth Leads Careteam AIDS Walk as Grand Marshall

Posted in The Fierceness on October 23, 2011 by jackmax2

(MYRTLE BEACH, S. C. – OCT. 20, 2011) – Careteam, a Myrtle Beach, S.C.-based non-profit organization that assists those affected by HIV and AIDS, is excited to announce Project Runway star Jack Mackenroth, the first openly HIV-positive television personality since Pedro Zamora, as its Grand Marshall for this year’s Making a Difference 5K Run and AIDS Walk, on Sat., Nov. 5, 2011.

“As a public figure, Jack Mackenroth’s honesty and openness about living with a positive HIV status helps educate and dispel myths,” said Johanna Haynes, Careteam’s Executive Director. “We are honored to have such an inspiring role model as Jack leading the charge at this year’s 5K Run and AIDS Walk.”

Mackenroth has always been very open about his positive HIV status, since talking about the disease on Project Runway and beyond. Since his diagnosis in 1990, he has tried to combat the stigma associated with HIV by being a role model through his professional and athletic achievements. He believes that public visibility educates and eventually saves lives.


He started a national HIV education campaign over three years ago, and he continues to be a featured presenter at HIV/AIDS events, colleges and high schools around the country, sharing his story of living with HIV. He just released his 2012 “Calendar for the Cure,” ( with all proceeds going to amfAR, to help find a cure for HIV.


He is also currently writing a comedic tell-all memoir, entitled Making Lemonaids, which will be out next year. Most recently, he won a 2011 National Lampoon Twitter Award, and was voted one of DNA Magazine’s “Sexiest Men Alive,” along with celebrities such as Ryan Reynolds and Ricky Martin. As the only out HIV-positive member of the group, he continues to serve as a role model in the HIV community by speaking openly about his status.   

 Careteam’s 5K Run and AIDS Walk will kick off at Plyer Park, Myrtle Beach (corner of N. Ocean Blvd. and 11th Ave. N.) at 9:30 a.m. ET on Sat., Nov. 5. Registration will open at 8:30 a.m. ET. To register, visit or call (843) 236-9000.
