Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life

Scotiabank logo 2017

Understanding, respect and acceptance ties us together as a strong community

On Sunday, Sept. 24th ACNS enjoyed a fun filled day on the Halifax Commons, Pavilion Site. 

We just wrapped up Scotiabank AIDS Walk 2017 last Sunday. The event was a success and it brought in $27,199. The money raised HERE stay HERE and support HIV/AIDS efforts in Nova Scotia.

Thank you everyone who participated. Your help, support and dedication is much appreciated. We hope to see you again next year.

HIV Stigma affects mental health, self-confidence and the strength to carry on. People living with HIV/AIDS still fight stigma every day. Increase awareness, help raise funds and walk with us to make their voices heard.

Thank you!
