SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio AIDS Foundation (SAAF) will host the 26th Annual Run & Walk for AIDS from 7-10:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 23, at the Wheatley Heights Sports Complex, 200 Noblewood Dr.

Early registration is now open for the popular family- and pet-friendly HIV/AIDS fundraiser, which includes both a two-mile walk and a 5-km run.  Sign up at http://www.RunWalkforAIDS.org.  Fees are $25 for walkers and $30 for runners who sign up by 5 p.m. Monday, September 11.  After the deadline, the fee is $30 for walkers and $35 for runners any time leading up to the day of the event.
                                                                                                                                   
“This is San Antonio’s most significant HIV/AIDS fundraiser, providing much-needed support for SAAF’s client services, including free HIV testing, prevention education, case management, outpatient care and our year-round hot meals program for needy HIV-positive people in the greater San Antonio area,” said SAAF CEO Cynthia Nelson. “We encourage everyone to join us for this great event for a great cause.”

This year, the event route begins and ends at Wheatley Heights Sports Complex, running along the Salado Creek Greenway.  All registrants will receive a participant packet containing the official event T-shirt, coupons and promo items.  They will also enjoy complimentary refreshments provided by several local vendors, information and activity booths, DJ music and more – all in a colorful, festival-like setting.
