Colorado: AIDS Walk Donations Wobbling

August 16, 2011

The 24th annual AIDS Walk Colorado drew more than 8,000 people to Denver's Cheesman Park on Saturday. Some walkers remarked that the event was smaller than in years past. In 1997, for example, the walk's 12,000 registered participants raised $1.4 million. "There is lots of donor fatigue, and people don't think they need to support it anymore," said Tim Schuetz, spokesperson for the Colorado AIDS Project, which organizes the event. "People think it is under control. That couldn't be further from the truth. AIDS has moved out of crisis mode to the chronic mode." As of March 2010, almost 11,000 Coloradans were living with HIV/AIDS. For more information, visit www.aidswalkcolorado.org.
