AIDS Walk is This Saturday

There are an estimated 1,080 people living in Kent County with HIV. Approximately 260 of these people do not even know they have it – that means nearly 1 in 4 people who are infected are unaware, and HIV is still on the rise in Kent County. In 2011 there were 42 confirmed new HIV diagnoses.

Is there help?  Yes there is.  The Grand Rapids Red Project is a full service prevention organization, and there are multiple partner organizations offering free rapid HIV testing.

Tomorrow, Saturday September 14, the Grand Rapids chapter of the Red Project will host the 21st Annual AIDS Walk & Run.

Our news partner, WZZM TV13 tells us the AIDS Walk & Run is an annual fundraising event dedicated to raising money to support services related to education and elimination of HIV/AIDS in the greater Grand Rapids area.

The race kicks off at 11:00 a.m. in Rosa Parks Circle.

The funds raised annually from the AIDS walk fund education, advocacy, prevention, and care programs for those effected in the Greater Grand Rapids area.

For more information about how to register for the AIDS Walk & Run and how to get involved or donate to the Grand Rapids Red Project, visit: redproject.org.
