Last year's AIDS Walk in Nelson.

Take a step, make a difference at Nelson’s AIDS Walk

ANKORS invites you to join the national AIDS Walk for Life and walk, run, gallop, wheel, swagger or skip to show your support

This Saturday, ANKORS invites you to join the national AIDS Walk for Life and walk, run, gallop, wheel, swagger or skip to show your support for people living with HIV in the West Kootenay/Boundary region.

This is the 18th annual ANKORS AIDS Walk for Life and we are looking for walkers, both individual and team, as well as donations.  One hundred per cent of the proceeds go towards the ANKORS foundation fund which helps support people living with HIV to travel to medical appointments, for nutritional supplements and other emergency financial needs.

Registration begins at Hall and Baker Streets at 11 a.m. with a warm-up.

Donations in any amount to the AIDS Walk for Life fund can be made at that time. The walk then proceeds down to the Lakeside Park Rotary Shelter, for a barbecue, music and speakers.

Organize a team, seek out pledges and/or donate on the day of the walk. Pledge sheets can be picked up at ANKORS at 101 Baker Street. If you would like to volunteer for the event, please call ANKORS at (250)505 5506, or e-mail information@ankors.bc.ca.

AIDS – It’s not over.
