On Sept. 28, Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle and first lady Jessica Doyle will lead the 14th annual AIDS Walk Wisconsin along the Milwaukee lakefront. "They have always been strong supporters of the fight against AIDS, and the governor has walked the walk several times in the past," said Doug Nelson, president of the AIDS Resource Center. HIV cases were up 16 percent in the state last year, Doyle noted. Since the walk began, participants have raised more than $7.5 million; the proceeds benefit 11 Wisconsin organizations that provide AIDS prevention and education services, health and social services, and HIV drug trial research. Last year's walk was held simultaneously in Milwaukee and Madison; this year, Madison's AIDS Network will host its own walk. For information or to register, telephone 800-348-WALK.
