A Walk to Remember
About 8,000 people will get physical in Cheesman Park today to show their support for the Colorado AIDS Project, its sister organizations and people living with HIV/AIDS at the 21st annual AIDS Walk Colorado. Last year, the event which also includes the 5K AIDS Run raised more than $600,000 to support area AIDS services and educational organizations. Get to Cheesman Park around 8:30 a.m. to register for the race (walkers bring their pledges; runners pay $35). Opening ceremonies begin at 10 a.m., and at 10:30, the starting shot is fired, with runners in the lead. The course stays in and around the park; expect closures on Humboldt and Marion streets and Seventh Avenue between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. At the finish line, the AIDS Walk Beer Garden will add a healthy dose of levity to an otherwise sobering occasion. For more information, call 303-861-WALK (9255) or visit www.aidswalkcolorado.org.
Sat., Sept. 6, 8:30 a.m., 2008
