Over 2,500 Chicagoans enjoyed a beautiful Saturday and raised over $377,000 at AIDS Run & Walk Chicago. In its fourteenth year, thousands of walkers, runners and volunteers from all walks of life gathered to put an end to the stigma associated with HIV and AIDS at our largest grassroots fundraising event. Take a peek at 10 tweets from Saturday that capture the energy, optimism and new voices that emerged at this year’s #AIDSRunWalkChicago.1.
