Greensboro, NC -- The Triad Health Project announced Wednesday that December's annual Winter Walk for AIDS raised more money than it has in the past 20 years.
Triad Health Project, the area's HIV/AIDS service organization, said over $140,000 was raised, making the walk the most successful in its history.
"For a non-profit to meet its goal on a special event in these challenging times is a major achievement," said Addison Ore, THP's Executive Director. "To exceed our goal by over 35% is nothing short of miraculous and a testament to the amazing generosity of our community."
The Winter Walk for AIDS is held each year to commemorate World AIDS Day and raise both HIV/AIDS awareness and vital funding for THP programs and services.
Funds generated through the Winter Walk help sustain services that THP provides to nearly 500 people living with HIV/AIDS in Guilford County, as well as HIV testing and prevention education programs that reach hundreds more in the community each year.
