Run & Walk for AIDS
Saturday, September 27, 2014
Blue Star Complex (Mission Reach River Extension), 7:30AM-10:30AM
This year the Run & Walk for AIDS, benefiting the San Antonio AIDS Foundation (SAAF) will be held on Saturday, September 27th and will begin and end at the Blue Star Complex in the King William District. The 5K run will begin at 7:30AM and the 2-mile walk will begin at 8:00AM with music, booths and activities located at Blue Star's south end parking lot.
The Run & Walk for AIDS was founded in 1991 in what was formally known as Walk for Life. Each year, hundreds of South Texans gather to celebrate life and to raise funds for SAAF. The Run & Walk for AIDS promotes awareness and generates funds that allow SAAF to continue its pursuit of providing compassionate medical care and social services to people with HIV/AIDS and to help prevent the spread of HIV through education and free HIV testing.
This is a day for family, friends, co-workers and even pets to join in and support SAAF while promoting community awareness. Last year several hundred people gathered together and in 2014 we are anticipating a significant increase in attendance. The Run & Walk for AIDS is an excellent way for groups and corporations to get involved.
