All of Laramie is invited to join in Saturday morning to raise money for residents with HIV and Aids. This Saturday marks the 10th annual WyoAIDS Walk. The event begins at 9:30 am with registration and an opening ceremony will begin at 11am.

There is going to be a five kilometer course that participants will walk starting at UW's Prexy's Pasture down Ivinson to 3rd street and make its way back to campus on Grand Avenue. A barbeque will also be offered to any participants who worked up an appetite during the walk and would like to mingle with others. Prizes will also be awarded to the top walkers!

The Annual WyoAIDS Walk averages around 400 people each year and it's a great way to show your support for the community. Also, people who attend this year’s walk are asked to donate at least $20 to cover the cost of a T-shirt.

The WyoAIDS Walk has raised more than $135,000 since 2001 that has gone to pay for dental, medical, vision, counseling and other emergency needs for Wyoming residents and their families living with HIV/AIDS. As we all know medical expenses can be overbearing at times and it's fundraisers like this that help locals pay some of their bills.
