For the first time, Nebraska AIDS Project’s annual AIDS Walk will provide an opportunity for runners to show off their skills. A 5K run has been added to this year’s event, scheduled for Sunday, September 23.
Once again, Hastings College will host the event, with registration at Hazelrigg Student Center (705 E. 9th Street) beginning at 1 p.m. Following remarks by Cindy White, a Nebraska resident who is a long-time survivor of HIV/AIDS, and inspiring songs by Rev. Scott Taylor, Pastor of the First Christian Church in Grand Island, the walk/5K run will start at 1:30 p.m. Groups are encouraged to walk as a team, and all individual walkers and runners are welcome.
This event will help raise funds to sustain services provided by the Nebraska AIDS Project-Kearney Office to residents in 38 central Nebraska counties.
For all participants, Pepsi products, Runza, Valentino’s pizza and Eileen’s Cookies will be available, and participants who raise or donate at least $5 will be eligible for door prizes. T-shirts will be available for all who raise or donate at least $20 while supplies last.
