NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nashville CARES held its 29th Annual (and first-ever virtual) Nashville AIDS Walk on Saturday, November 21, 2020. Fundraising efforts began 35 days prior, in honor of the agency’s 35th anniversary this year. Each of those days featured contests, challenges and inspirational stories, interviews with those working to end the HIV epidemic and personal reflections from those living with HIV.
Thanks to generous sponsors, donors, individual and team fundraisers Nashville CARES raised over $89,600! We had 215 people register and 28 teams formed to make this event successful. Donations can still be made at nashvilleaidswalk.com.
“The Nashville AIDS Walk raises money to help Nashville CARES work toward our mission of ending the HIV epidemic in Middle Tennessee,” said Natisha Moultry, Special Events Manager “It is also a great opportunity for us to share the message that HIV is still an issue in our local community.”
