Aids Walk and Charlotte weekend

Aids Walk

Hey guys, let's get together and walk to help fight Aids and HIV. Walking Strong. AIDS WALK Charlotte is one of the largest HIV awareness and fundraising events in the Carolinas. This 1.8 mile walk is a visual representation of the Charlotte region's commitment to caring for our neighbors in need and slowing the spread of this devastating disease. All funds raised during this event stay in the Charlotte community and benefits the services and programs RAIN provides to youth, adults and senior adults living with HIV and those that are at risk. After the walk, we will eat lunch and explore beautiful, big Charlotte. There will plenty of time for shopping and "parousing" the city. We will also have dinner and likely visit one of the local bars. After going out we will retire to the hotel, and leave promptly in the morning. So come on out, and let's give our support to fight Aids/HIV, and also enjoy the city. Please bring money for your portion of the hotel, shopping, and donation you would like to give to the Aids Walk. Thanks, Rich.
