Kentucky: AIDS Walk Draws 5,000 People, but Fundraising Down
October 1, 2010
Last Sunday's Louisville AIDS Walk drew 5,000 people and quite a few dogs, but its take, $147,078, -- was down by about $50,000 from last year, said Event Director Brad Hampton. AIDS Services Center Coalition Inc., which produces the walk, is an umbrella organization comprising 11 AIDS service organizations. Hampton said that unless the shortfall can be made up by year's end, services will have to be cut next year. "People have the misconception that AIDS is not the crisis it used to be. While there have been advancements, that means more people in Louisville are living with HIV/AIDS than ever before," Hampton said. "We're struggling to do more with less."
