Locals join the 22nd Aids Walk downtown

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Every year the walk draws hundreds in support of Aids awareness.

Participants and volunteers walk a little over one mile downtown from Parkview Field.

The walk is one of the Positive Resource Connection's biggest fundraisers bringing in over $40,000 each year to support the mission.

"It is an important cause to bring that public awareness. We hope they will walk away and remember those we lost in the past, and honor those who are living with H.I.V presently," organizer Jeff Markley said.

Positive Resource Connection provides H.I.V education, prevention, and testing for people living with H.I.V aids, their families and loved ones at risk for H.I.V, and the general public.

They serve 12 counties in Northeast Indiana.
