Chicago AIDS walk draws 5,000
More than 5,000 people participated in the AIDS Foundation of Chicago's annual AIDS Run and Walk on September 20, the Chicago Free Press reports. Among the participants was city alderman Tom Tunney, who helped organize previous walks. "It's a constant reminder of how AIDS is affecting so many communities," Tunney said of the walk and the health fair that followed the event. Funds raised by the walk will support several HIV/AIDS service organizations throughout the greater Chicago area.
