AIDS Walk Portland is Just Around the Corner!

Cascade AIDS Project is in "full steam ahead" mode for AIDS Walk Portland! We're looking forward to gathering more than 10,000 people on Pioneer Square on Sunday, September 22, 2013.

At AIDS Walk Portland, we'll listen to local dignitaries talk about HIV/AIDS in Oregon and SW Washington, and we'll dance to a DJ while we wait for the big kick-off. VIP fundraisers--that is, those of who raise more than $1,000--will enjoy a gourmet breakfast up at Departure, on the top of the Nines hotel overlooking the Square.

Then it's off for a 2.5-mile walk through Portland to raise awareness of HIV and the need to get tested!

This is a critical year in the fight against HIV/AIDS. A recent study by the National Institutes of Health showed that 96% of HIV-positive people in medical care don't transmit the virus. Since one in five people living with HIV don't even know they have the virus, we are renewing our efforts to get everyone tested and in medical care, if needed. It's a proven way to end the epidemic. As President Obama said last World AIDS Day, we are living with the possibility of seeing an AIDS-free generation.

Thank you for being part of AIDS Walk Portland. It's time to pull your team together and start raising money! We'll see you at Pioneer Square on Sunday, September 22nd.
