Indiana AIDS Walk 2012 on September 29th

This year’s Indiana AIDS Walk will be a “Walk Around the Block” in the beautiful Herron Morton Place neighborhood. It’s a new route at a new time, but it won’t be a great walk without you and your team! Register at www.indianaAIDSwalk.org.

All proceeds from the Indiana AIDS Walk supports the Gregory R. Powers Direct Emergency Financial Assistance (DEFA) Fund. DEFA provides funds for emergency shelter, utilities, food, medicine, transportation and other critical needs of those living with HIV/AIDS.

In addition to helping us raise much needed funds, the new route (see map) will be packed with entertainment and activities for everyone, including a Wellness Fair, food trucks and live entertainment. This is a family event, so bring the kids, cousins, grandparents, friends and more! As always, pets are welcome too.

Here is the schedule of events:

16th and Alabama parking lot

  • 3:30 p.m. Registration opens
  • 3:45 p.m. Live Entertainment
  • 4:30 p.m. Welcome and Awards

And, immediately after the Walk, Gregs Our Place will be hosting a BBQ Party on the patio! The first 200 walkers get in free. (Must be 21 or older to enter)

Teams and individuals can register for the September 29 event at www.indianaaidswalk.org. While the event is free, participants are encouraged to make donations and raise additional donations.
