Every Step Counts

Weeks of events, marked with red ribbons and donation pleas, culminate today with the 22nd-annual AIDS Walk Kansas City. Hundreds of hustlers for the cause converge at Theis Park (at Oak Street and Emanuel Cleaver II Boulevard) for a three-mile stroll to demonstrate solidarity against a disease that affects more than 5,000 people in Kansas City. Proceeds generated from today’s walk — and the fashion shows, parties and plays that have led up to it — go to the AIDS Service Foundation, which provides medical services and shelter to local residents with HIV/AIDS. Registration for AIDS Walk begins at 8 a.m., with ceremonies beginning at 9 and the actual walk starting at 10. For more information, call 816-931-0959 or see aidswalkkansascity.org.
