AIDS Walk Run In Philly

Where/When do the Walk & Run begin?

The Walk and Run begin at Eakins Oval (in front of the Philadelphia Art Museum).  Turn in your sponsor sheets/donations beginning at 7:30AM.  The Walk and 10K AIDS Run both kick-off at 9AM.

Since 1981, over 600,000 Americans have died of AIDS.
Every 9 1/2 minutes, someone in the U.S becomes infected with HIV.
Approximately 20% of people infected with HIV do not know it.
According to the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, Philadelphians are being infected with HIV at a rate MORE THAN 50% higher than residents of New York City.
The rate of infection in Philadelphia is FIVE times the national average.
About half of the 1.2 million people living with HIV in the U.S are not receiving medical care.

A little side note for those picking up new partners or curious about the one your currently hitting the sack with….you can go into your local clinic, have your mouth swabbed and receive the results within 20-30 minutes. Talk about no excuse for being in the dark just got real. Call your local county free health clinics for their schedule and dates they administer the test. Its free! A lot of these free health clinics lose funding every year due to the lack of folks using their services.
