The AIDS Network Kootenay Outreach and Support Society received a $1,180 boost from Nelson Walmart employees.

The AIDS Network Kootenay Outreach and Support Society (ANKORS) received a $1,180 boost from Nelson Walmart employees this week, who raised $780 through two barbecues this summer. The store then added $400 to the sum.

The funds will go towards the AIDS Walk for Life fundraiser on September 20. Registration begins at 10 a.m. and the walk commences at 12 p.m. “We will walk down to Lakeside Park for 1 p.m. where there will be musical guests, speakers, and a barbecue,” said AIDS Walk coordinator Erynn Davis.
