On Sunday September 23rd, the Aids Awareness Association invites Calgarians to join over 700 walkers for the ScotiaBank’s Aids Walk For Life.
As always, the Walk is about bring people together, raising awareness and funding a great cause. Since 1983, AIDS Calgary Awareness Association (ACAA) addresses the real needs of individuals who are living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. The Walk For Life helps to enable ACAA to provide services to the growing client base.
Volunteers matter, and each hour invested is a direct contribution to your community. Volunteers are critical to the success of ACAA, and on average offer over 14,000 hours of their time to our community each year - that is the equivalent of eight staff positions. It is impossible to ignore the facts: HIV and AIDS do exist, and there is still no cure. But, that is where the role of the volunteer comes into play: a cure is possible, but the community just needs to work together to raise awareness, funding and support for those directly affected.
You can obtain a pledge form for the Calgary AIDS walk at the centre of this magazine.
