AIDS Project invites public to Walk for Life


BRATTLEBORO — The AIDS Project of Southern Vermont is inviting the public to help raise money and awareness Saturday at its 32nd annual AIDS Walk.

The event, set for 10 a.m. to noon at the Robert H. Gibson River Garden on Main Street, will spotlight community efforts not only to support local people living with HIV/AIDS but also to reduce the risk of transmission to others.

The event will feature speakers honoring Lynn Martin for 30 years of unwavering support and commitment, music by local singing group The Harmony Lot, a brief period of remembrance and a light lunch.

The AIDS Project, established in 1988, is encouraging individuals, businesses, churches, schools and community groups to form teams to seek contributions for its work with clients in Windham, Bennington and southern Windsor counties.

This year's walk is sponsored by New Chapter Inc., West River Family Dental, Brattleboro Savings & Loan, Brown Computer Solutions, Swiss Precision, Against the Grain Gourmet, and The Richards Group.
