AIDS Walk Set For This Weekend

by Rick Howlett on September 27, 2008

The 16th annual AIDS Walk will be held Sunday in downtown Louisville.

Organizer Brad Hampton this is Kentucky’s largest annual HIV/AIDS fundraising and awareness event, but contributions have dropped off by more than 40% since 2001. Meanwhile, the number of H-I-V/AIDS patients has sharply increased.

“We have had remarkable success with medical treatment and medications that have helped people that are living with HIV/AIDS live longer, some people but that also means there’s a growing need for the services we provide,” Hampton said.

The AIDS Walk and related activities begin at 3:00pm Sunday on the Belvedere.
