On Sunday, Sept. 23, HIV/AIDS advocates from across Chicago will take part in the 2018 AIDS Run & Walk Chicago.
Held at Soldier Field, the 17th annual event will raise awareness and funds for the AIDS Foundation of Chicago( AFC ) and 34 CommunityDirect partners, with proceeds benefiting programs and services improving the lives of Chicagoans living with and vulnerable to HIV/AIDS.
Approximately, 2,500 participants gathered last year to participate in one of the city's most vibrant annual runs and walks. This year's event will mobilize the community under the theme "Live true. Be you."
Since its 2001 acquisition by the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, the event has netted more than $5 million to battle the epidemic. For more information or to participate, visit AIDSRunWalk.org or call 312-334-0946.
