AIDS Walk Orlando
April 27 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 am
ORLANDO, FL, February 18, 2019– Hope and Help Center of Central Florida, Inc. (Hope & Help) hosts its annual AIDS WALK ORLANDO on Saturday, April 27th at 7:30am at the Walt Disney Amphitheatre located at Lake Eola Park, 195 Rosalind Avenue, Orlando, FL 32801. AIDS WALK ORLANDO is a popular community event that promotes HIV education and free HIV screenings in a supportive atmosphere.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Florida Department of Health report that Orlando has the 2nd highest HIV/AIDS transmission rate in the nation and Florida is ranked 1st in new HIV and AIDS cases. Hope & Help plans to use the funds raised to prevent new HIV transmissions through its free HIV screenings, combined primary and HIV care, safer sex education, and case management services for people living with HIV.
According to Executive Director Lisa Barr, “For the last two years, AIDS WALK ORLANDO was held in the evening, which brought a greater sense of excitement to the fundraiser. This year, the event returns to the morning. With the community’s support, we will continue to work hard in reducing new HIV transmissions in our area. Every step we take around Lake Eola is a step towards progress.”
Registration is $25 per walker, whether walking as an individual or in a team, and includes a free AIDS WALK ORLANDO t-shirt. To register to walk, become a sponsor or vendor, donate, or for more information, visit: www.AIDSWALKORLANDO.org or call 407-645-2577, extension 110.
