Greensboro, NC -- Hundreds of walkers gathered near downtown Greensboro Sunday to recognize World AIDS Day in this year's Winter Walk for AIDS.
The three-mile walk, which started and ended at War Memorial Stadium, was meant to commemorate the day and raise awareness for HIV and AIDS, as well as funds for the Triad Health Project's programs and services.
Organizers sold donated crafts and jewelry as well.
Physicians also offered free and confidential testing for HIV and Syphilis at the stadium prior to the walk.
This year's theme, "I Am Positive," is meant to remind people that we're all in the fight against HIV and AIDS together, regardless of our health, said Ken Keeton, THP director of development and community involvement.
The event's honorary co-chairs were Rev. Dr. Arnetta E. Beverly, pastor of St. Matthews United Methodist Church in Greensboro, and Rep. Marcus Brandon, N.C. House Representative of Greensboro.
