St. Cloud's fourth annual AIDS Walk is being held Saturday, May 3, at Riverside Park. Money raised will go to American Red Cross' Fighting AIDS Through Education, a group of teens who go to area schools to talk about HIV/AIDS. FATE started in the Twin Cities about seven years ago, said Susie Wistrom, HIV/AIDS coordinator for the Central Minnesota American Red Cross. She said FATE has a two-fold purpose: to educate people about HIV/AIDS and prevention, and to debunk stereotypes about people with the disease. For more information, telephone 320-251-7641.
