September 20, 2007
AIDS Saint John will hold its 14th annual AIDS Walk for Life Sunday at Market Square/Harbor Passage. Julie Dingwell, the organization's executive director, said the money raised will be used to support local AIDS services and programs. The event is part of Canada's AIDS Walk for Life, in which communities across the country raise money for local AIDS agencies. The annual walks have attracted the participation of more than half a million people and raised $25.8 million (US $25.7 million) since 1986. For more information, visit www.aidswalkforlife.ca.
