AIDS Walk Portland Quickly Approaching!

AIDS Walk Portland is Sunday, September 23! We've raised almost $200,000 so far, but we have a ways to go before we reach our goal of $450,000. I know we can do it!

All funds raised go to support Cascade AIDS Project's mission of preventing HIV infections, supporting and empowering people affected and infected by HIV/AIDS, and eliminating HIV/AIDS-related stigma. A portion of the proceeds will support our partner agencies, as well. Those agencies are Our House, Quest, the HIV Day Center, Partnership Project, and Esther's Pantry.

The National Institutes of Health recently released a study showing that HIV-positive people who adhere to their treatment are 96% less likely to transmit HIV to their sexual partners. This "treatment as prevention" finding proves the important of finding people who are HIV positive and getting them into treatment as soon as possible. To this end, Cascade AIDS Project continues to expand its HIV testing, counseling, and referral program with the goal of having everyone know his or her HIV status, and for those who are positive to receive the medication they need.

We can only accomplish this goal with the help of everyone who walks, donates, and raises funds for AIDS Walk. We won't quit until the epidemic is over. We hope to see you among the 10,000 people who gather on Sunday, September 23, for AIDS Walk Portland.
