Thank you so much to the 10,000+ of you who participated in AIDS Walk Portland this year! It was a whopping success, and we raised $493,000 toward Cascade AIDS Project's mission of preventing HIV infections, supporting and empowering people living with or affected by HIV, and eliminating HIV-related stigma and health disparities.
AIDS Walk Portland 2015 took place at The Fields Park on a gorgeous, sunny Saturday. Before the walk, we heard inspiring speeches from Oregon's governor and Portland's mayor. Bolivia was a tremendous emcee.
It was heart warming to see everyone: families, couples, friends, teams from work, teams in costume--you name it! We had babies, pets, and elders in wheelchairs. Homeless clients mixed with corporate barons--we're all one group when it comes to fighting HIV.
Again, thank you so much! We look forward to seeing you next year for AIDS Walk Portland 2016!
