Phoenix AIDS Walk
The Phoenix AIDS Walk began in Phoenix in 1987 and quickly grew to become a community-wide event that at its peak raised nearly $1 million dollars. More people with HIV/AIDS need care than ever before, but federal and private funding for medical care and supportive services continues to decline. Phoenix AIDS Walk has been steadily increasing in visibility and in funds raised throughout the last few years.
Team Spa SWINA organized a group of walkers and participated in showing their solidarity and support at the 2010 Phoenix AIDS Walk.
