Kentucky: AIDS Walk Raises Highest Total in a Decade
October 16, 2012
Attracting more than 3,000 people despite gusting winds and the threat of rain on October 14, the annual Louisville AIDS Walk raised a preliminary total of $206,819 -- its largest sum in a decade. Donations are accepted through the end of the year with proceeds designated for services to individuals with HIV/AIDS in the Louisville area. Approximately 2,500 individuals live with HIV/AIDS in Louisville, with a few hundred more in southern Indiana, according to Walk director Brad Hampton.
