For 22 years, Chattanooga CARES’s largest fundraiser Strides of March has been pulling together Chattanoogans to raise money and awareness to fight HIV. The Strides of March AIDS Walk will be held this Saturday. The event will take place at Blue Goose Hollow Trailhead located off Riverfront Parkway, 876 W 9th St. Nick Lutsko and the Gimmix will kick-off at 6 p.m. There will be food trucks, beer, and several vendors. Participants will be given illuminated red paper lanterns to carry as they walk.
There is no fee for the walk, however, participants are encouraged to collect donations. This can be done online at my.chattanoogacares.org/strides
. Participants will be given the option to create their own individual or team fundraising webpage, which can then help them raise money for the event.
