Nevada: Thousands Walk to Raise Money for AIDS Programs

April 27, 2010

About 8,500 people took part in Sunday's 20th annual AIDS Walk Las Vegas, hosted by Aid for AIDS of Nevada. The walk's two-mile route took participants through downtown Las Vegas before returning to the starting point at World Market Center. For the ninth consecutive year, magicians Penn & Teller served as grand marshals. AFAN's goal, $500,000, was lower than the $550,000 the walk raised last year. "In this economy, donations have been down," acknowledged Jared Hafen, AFAN's associate director. "But I'm confident we'll reach our goal." AFAN has more than 3,000 clients in southern Nevada and northern Arizona. "We will continue to walk until our services are no longer needed," Hafen said.
