On September 10, at The Fields Park, we're set for another amazing AIDS Walk Portland. As always, the money we raise will go 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.
This year's walk is especially important, as we're opening health clinic in the winter of 2017 focusing on the needs of the LGBTQ community. The clinic will be a safe an affirming place where, for example, a trans man can get a pap smear or a lesbian couple can go for family planning--and not feel judged.
But the walk's not all serious! Form a team and have some fun. Maybe your team will wear T shirts from your business, or maybe you'll form a themed team, like Andrew Shayde's The Mighty Monster team, where everyone will dress as a different mythical beast.
Where else but at AIDS Walk Portland can you help banish HIV while having a great time? Please join us!
