Calling all Heroes for Zero!
Saturday September 16, 2017
We had an amazing capacity turn out to our 26th Annual AIDS Walk and Second Annual Superhero Run! We really felt the love this year! We had the honour of having two exceptional people to do our keynote address. Lewis Cardinal, spoke of the need for community to support and for politicians to step up. Such moving words about the need to recognize our Indigenous Peoples and the harms that impact them. Ann Favel, our brave warrior who stood tall and told her story of living with HIV and her first ever disclosure and why she now chooses to loan her voice to other Indigenous women not yet ready to voice their own. Powerful words.
Thank you to our fabulous MC's, Nancy Carlson from Global TV and Go-Go Fetch for being willing to put your name and fame to our cause.
Special thank you to MP Randy Boissonnault for bringing greetings from the Hill, but also for committing to the de-criminalization of HIV. It was a full park and we all heard that commitment to ending stigma!
