Rhode Island: Walk for Life Turns 25 in Year of Budget Cuts

September 28, 2010

Sunday's 25th anniversary Walk for Life in Providence attracted about 600 participants, double last year's number, according to AIDS Project Rhode Island. The day began with a statehouse rally, at which advocates called for the restoration of funds cut from the AIDS programming budget for 2011. Stephen Hourahan, executive director of APRI, said about 100 people took advantage of the opportunity to be screened for HIV at a mobile testing unit. For more information, visit
