AIDS Awareness Walk/Oct. 14

The AIDS Community Resources, based in Syracuse, New York, will have its annual First Frost AIDS Walk/Run on October 14. Pre-registration is at 1 p.m. for the 5K walk/run, beginning at the New York State Zoo at Thompson Park. AIDS Community Resources offers prevention, education, and support services to individuals infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS in nine counties, including Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence. Creative pre-event fundraisers usually raise more funds and awareness for the agency than the walk. According to Development Associate Jacki C. Coe, the more interesting the event, the more people are attracted and are thus exposed to the educational information the organization provides about HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases. In the past, pre-events have included a wing-eating challenge, Blow-Out Fantasy Hair Show, and a Red Solo Cup Party. For more information visit the walk’s website at
