Strides of March hosts AIDS Walk and Fun Run this Sunday
This Saturday, Chattanooga CARES’ largest fundraiser, Strides of March, will be having an AIDS Walk and Fun Run to help raise awareness for HIV/AIDS.
CARES supports over 600 HIV positive clients in the Chattanooga area and provides awareness, education, prevention, and testing for more than 20,000 people in the southeast annually. They are passionate about helping those who have been diagnosed and educating those who may not know about those who have been affected, or the disease itself.
They have a primary care center, client services, and a prevention education department, which includes a variety of testing services. Their focus remains on creating an environment of empowerment, unity, safety, and compassion.
CARES is hosting the Walk and Fun Run in order to support those living with or affected by AIDS. The event will take place at Renaissance Park. Check in and activities will begin at noon and the Fun Run will kick off around 1:15 p.m., with the AIDS Walk starting at 2 p.m. Come with family and friends for a little fresh air and exercise and support the members of Chattanooga CARES.
Interested? You can register online at my.chattanoogacares.org for the walk and Fun Run. The walk is free, the Fun Run is $25, and donations are always welcome. When registering, there is also an option to create a personal account to raise money for the event. CARES hopes to see you there.
