According to the Florida Department of Health, Miami-Dade County reported 495 new cases of AIDS in 2016. Overall, the amount of cumulative cases in the county is more than 36,000 and growing. In order to bring awareness of these statistics and to support those affected, the AIDS Walk Miami has been created.
The 5K walk and fundraiser is designed to benefit Care Resource and Food For Life Network Food Bank. Care Resource is a South Florida organization that provides support like medical care, prevention and education, psychological care and management to thousands of Miami-Dade County residents living with HIV or AIDS. Food For Life Network Food Bank provides meals and nutritional counseling and education to combat malnutrition in affected residents.
The AIDS Walk will be Sunday, April 23rd, at 9am at Soundscape Park. Afterward, there will be lots of celebratory entertainment like music, food and even complimentary massages!
The AIDS Walk is attempting to raise $200,000, and the registration fee is $25 for participants over 18 years old.
