AIDS Walk Saturday

blog by Ben Tsujimoto  • 

Saturday will mark the 20th AIDS Walk in Buffalo, two decades of memorializing those who’ve died from the disease and appreciating those who continue to battle.

The walk begins at Hoyt Lake in Delaware Park with a flower launch and red ribbon display. Registration starts at 9 a.m. and the walk begins promptly at 10. The weather appears to be rain-free, sunny and moderate—the ideal morning for a lengthy stroll.

There’s still an opportunity to create a team to participate in the 5k walk, join an existing team, enter as an individual or register as a family. Any monetary donation is welcomed, and online registration can be completed here

As of Wednesday morning, total donations are approaching $28,000. According to Evergreen Health Services, over 7,000 Western New Yorkers are currently being treated for AIDS while another 3,000 are living with HIV and unaware that they’re affected.

Proceeds from the event support Evergreen Health Services, formerly AIDS Community Services, which offers medical, educational and supportive services to those inflicted with the disease.
