2017 Indiana AIDS Walk
Saturday, September 23
Herron Morton Place Neighborhood
(At the corner of Alabama & 16th Streets)
4-6 p.m., registration opens at 3:30 p.m.
Why Will You Walk?
Some Indiana AIDS Walk participants walk to remember a loved one lost. Some walk to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS. Others walk to help out a stranger in need. On Saturday, September 23, you can walk with us to raise money for the Gregory R. Powers Direct Emergency Financial Assistance (DEFA) Fund. DEFA pays for emergency expenses for Hoosiers living with HIV/AIDS who are at or below the poverty level. Last year, DEFA funds were used to cover utility payments, keep a family from becoming homeless, doctors’ visits, prescription drug refills, bus passes even to replace a battery-powered wheelchair.
Families, friends, businesses, civic leaders, fraternities, sororities, churches, educators, volunteers, corporations, children, pets, clubs, associations anyone who wants to help those living with HIV/AIDS in emergency situations.
More than 1,000 people participated last year and our goal is 1,500 walkers in 2017!
