AIDS Walk Portland rolled out on Sunday, September 22, and it was a rousing success. More than 10,000 walkers braved the potential of rain--the storm held off until safely after the walk--to meet in Pioneer Square in downtown Portland. They enjoyed a free breakfast, talked with friends, listened to inspiring speakers and energizing music, then made the 2.5-mile walk through downtown, Old Town/China Town, and the Pearl District--all to raise awareness of and money for the fight against HIV/AIDS.

What an inspiring morning! Walkers from the Wild, Wild Kingdom elicited chuckles with their animal costumes. Families walked in groups. Couples walked hand-in-hand. The occasional friendly dog nosed in for a pat on the head. Each of the thousands of walkers was united by the common goal of preventing HIV infections, caring for and empowering people affected and infected by HIV/AIDS, and eliminating HIV/AIDS-related stigma.

And thanks to your help, we raised $480,000!! Amazing! Thank you so much, and we look forward to seeing you next year for AIDS Walk Portland 2014.
