Arizona: AIDS Walk Takes Over Downtown Phoenix

October 6, 2009

Sunday's 5K AIDS Walk drew thousands of people to downtown Phoenix, who together raised more than $300,000 to be shared among 16 local AIDS service organizations. "This year's AIDS Walk is extremely important in light of the economic struggles faced by many of our friends in the nonprofit field that are the main service providers to those afflicted by AIDS," said Mayor Phil Gordon. "As grant funding for vital HIV care and prevention continues to decline, the community must come together to fund support services and to slow the alarming increase in new infections, particularly among our youth and people of color," said Kirk Baxter, co-chair of the walk.
