About 5,000 people raised a record $235,000 for the Cascade AIDS Project at the 17th annual Portland AIDS Walk on September 20 in Portland, Ore., The Oregonian reports. The theme of this year's walk was "It's Not Over."
"The issue has slipped off the radar screen," said CAP executive director Thomas Bruner of the theme. "We're a society that likes to rally for the short haul and then move on." Money raised by the walk will support CAP's HIV/AIDS services. About 5,350 Oregonians are living with HIV, and AIDS deaths in the state rose 16% in 2002 after five years of decline.
