8th Annual AIDS Walk/Run of Central Maine
Saturday May 13, 2017 9 a.m.
Waterfront Park, Hallowell, ME

(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.

Event and registration information may be found here: Rick's Run 

Race history: Rick’s Run 5K was created in memory of Richard A. Roy.  Rick was a Vietnam Veteran who served his country proudly, yet suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  He lived with this burden daily throughout his life until he passed unexpectedly after complications from surgery in 2013.  All who knew and loved him saw the emotional hidden wounds of that sacrifice.  We are learning more each day about PTSD and how to help veterans who suffer with this disorder.  Rick’s Run will be donating 100% of the proceeds to the Veterans Count program within the Easterseals organization. Veterans Count’s mission is to provide critical and timely financial assistance and services when no other resource is available to veterans, service members and their families, to ensure their dignity, health and overall well-being. The organization has been successful providing our local veterans with financial assistance that averts homelessness, provides housing and access to mental health services. More information is available here.
