(Rain or Shine)

Plans for the 8th annual AIDS Walk/Run of Central Maine benefitting the Horizon Program at MaineGeneral Medical Center are well under way! This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we need your help. 
The mission of the Horizon Program is to provide quality, compassionate, and comprehensive medical and social services to all identified people living with HIV/AIDS in central and mid-coast Maine. With a clinic in Gardiner and offices in Augusta, the program provides:

*A clinic for medical services and interaction with health care professionals;

*Case management for people living with HIV/AIDS;

*Educational programs and community outreach;

*Support for people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.

Incredible progress has been made in the fight against HIV/AIDS, but a cure has not been found. Every year there are still 50,000 new HIV/AIDS cases nationwide and we need to continue to raise awareness to prevent this disease.

Whether it is a friend, parent, child, relative or significant other, many people are touched by HIV/AIDS. We walk to pay tribute to those loved ones who have died and support those who are living with this disease.

The Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce and Augusta Downtown Alliance are proud to join together to bring The Color Dash to downtown Augusta. Both organizations endeavor to invest in community growth and development in the Kennebec Valley by supporting their local businesses.
The vision is to have 800 dashers running through historic downtown Augusta and exposing them to the many businesses in the area. Total funds raised will be used to offer resources to the business leaders both in downtown Augusta and throughout the Kennebec Valley. They do this through promotion, educational seminars, community events, and by offering networking opportunities. The businesses that are a part of KVCC and the ADA are key players in our local economy – by supporting them we are providing a future for our community. We strive to paint a positive picture of Augusta and the Kennebec Valley by bringing dashers into our community and letting them experience all we have to offer.
