BRATTLEBORO—The AIDS Project of Southern Vermont invites the public to help raise money and awareness Saturday, May 18, at its 32nd annual AIDS Walk.
The event, set for 10 a.m. to noon at the River Garden on Main Street, will spotlight community efforts not only to support local people living with HIV/AIDS but also to reduce the risk of transmission to others.
The event will feature speakers honoring Lynn Martin for 30 years of unwavering support and commitment, music by local singing group The Harmony Lot, a brief period of remembrance, and a light lunch.
The AIDS Project, established in 1988, encourages individuals, businesses, churches, schools, and community groups to form teams to seek contributions for its work with clients in Windham, Bennington, and southern Windsor counties.
This year’s walk is sponsored by New Chapter Inc., West River Family Dental, Brattleboro Savings & Loan, Brown Computer Solutions, Swiss Precision, Against the Grain Gourmet, and The Richards Group.
