Make a Difference – Join the 10th Annual AIDS Run/Walk

The Sacramento Valley AIDS Run/Walk is this Sunday, Sept. 12, and if you haven’t yet joined a team or registered on your own to make this vital walk to help support HIV/AIDS services in Sacramento, you can still come on down to the West Steps of the Capitol on Sunday morning and make a difference.

State cutbacks are taking a huge a huge toll on HIV/AIDS service providers throughout the Sacramento region. Agencies are closing. Testing sites are drying up. Education efforts have gone by the wayside. Meanwhile, infection rates are on the rise.
Taking action - more than two-thousand people will be showing up on the West Steps of the State Capitol to raise money and help people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. Capital City AIDS Fund (CCAF) stages the run/walk and this year celebrates ten years of making a difference.

“Two thousand people will be difficult to ignore,” said CCAF Board Member and Event Co-Chair Chuck Driggers. “We are determined more than ever to raise money and help the HIV/AIDS community, especially with these ongoing devastating cutbacks.”

CCAF hopes to raise $200,000 to distribute to more than a dozen HIV/AIDS non-profit agencies in the area. The run, which is the only one of its kind supporting HIV/AIDS in Northern California, starts at 8:30 AM. The walk begins at 9:00 AM.  Registration begins at 7:30 a.m.

CCAF is a non-profit dedicated to raising money to help people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS in the Sacramento region.
