Billboards Raise Awareness for Charlotte AIDS Walk
April 2, 2010
The Regional AIDS Interfaith Network and Adams Outdoor Advertising have partnered to display two billboards promoting the 14th annual AIDS Walk Charlotte on May 1. The signs -- at South Boulevard near Remount Road and on Third Street near Charlottetown Avenue -- are seen by an estimated 35,000 motorists each day. RAIN says recent months have seen a 70 percent increase in the number of persons seeking its help, even as state and federal budget cuts have threatened the sustainability of many of its programs. The walk is the largest annual HIV/AIDS fundraiser in the Carolinas. For more information, visit www.carolinarain.org.
