HIV Arkansas proudly presents the Second Annual HIV Awareness Walk and Public Forum

Walk-1-e1341411622224 Saturday, September 8th, 2012 will prove to be another successful day for HIV Awareness as we host our 2nd Annual HIV Awareness Walk.

Please make your plans to join us as HIV Arkansas members from Fayetteville and Ft Smith, advocates, friends, family and local community supporters put their feet on the ground “STEPPIN’ UP FOR HIV AWARENESS”!

The opening ceremony will begin at 2pm on the main concourse stage of the Jones Center for Families in Springdale. The walk will take place outside on the track, unless it is raining and then we will walk indoors. Either way it will be a pleasant walk for all to enjoy.

We are challenging all our friends and members to take the “STEP UP” challenge and join us. It’s time to make a statement about HIV and the best way to bring awareness to the issue is with a big turnout for this event.

Also this will be the major fundraising event for HIV Arkansas and the NWA Regional HIV Clinic.
