AIDS Walk 2018 – Be a Hero!

Why Walk?

Saturday, May 5th marks the 22nd year of the Northeast Indiana AIDS Walk and is one of the Positive Resource Connection‘s biggest fundraisers each year bringing in over $40,000 annually to support their non-profit business.

The mission of the Northeast Indiana Positive Resource Connection is to prevent new cases of HIV, AIDS, Hepatitis, and STDs and advance a compassionate and stigma-free community response. The organization reaches over 10,000 individuals every year through a variety of programs including free HIV and Hepatitis testing; HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, and STD education; and linkage to care.

Clients of Positive Resource Connection receive HIV/AIDS support consisting of access to doctors, labs, and medications, encompassing complete wrap-around services to keep people and communities as healthy as possible!

Calling All Superheroes!

Put on your walking shoes and join the Positive Resource Connection at Parkview Field for our registration party followed by a quick walk around downtown Fort Wayne. The route is just over one mile – enough to get the heart pumping, but doesn’t leave you spent the rest of the day.
