Chicago Region and Home Office PRIDE network are teaming up again this year to participate in the 2017 Chicago Aids Run & Walk event. Our network is dedicated to supporting the AIDS Foundation of Chicago. We have been part of this event for several years now and each year gets bigger and better. Thirty five years into this epidemic we now know how the disease is spread and how to treat it, although we still have a long way to go in finding a cure, with your help there is hope.
Events like the Chicago AIDS Walk & Run help to save lives, improve awareness, and help educate the public.
Money from this event makes it possible to:
· Test hundreds of people each year for HIV
· Provide lifesaving and prevention/ wellness services for many HIV positive individuals living in Chicago
· Sponsor services that reach out to those most vulnerable to HIV infection. Such as African American and Latino Women, gay and bisexual men, injection drug users, and homeless youthYour donation to AIDS Run & Walk Chicago allows people vulnerable to and living with HIV and AIDS to live with dignity and purpose. Your support helps the AIDS Foundation of Chicago and its community partners continue their important work in the city of Chicago and beyond.
