A Huge Success: AIDS Walk 2011

PPO joined friends, supporters, and community members in walking in both celebration and memory of the people in our community affected by HIV/AIDS at this year’s Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life 2011. As a partner agency of AIDS Walk, PPO’s red ribbon sashes and beautiful backdrop decorated by the Insight Theatre team and the PPO staff showed our pride and commitment to the community and the Walk.

Our team busted through our goal of $4000 with days to go, and the team here at PPO couldn’t be prouder! After an incredible lead up of fundraising, Team Sexy Sassy PPO walked away with $5,693.08 in pledges for our 22 member team, all of which goes directly back to PPO programming in supporting our efforts to increase awareness and education on HIV/AIDS and sexual health as a whole. While the threat of rain loomed, the event lucked out with a cool, comfortable evening to enjoy as a community. 

Many congrats to our top fundraisers, Jocelyn, Courtney, and Jenny, in addition to the rest of our team, and the countless individuals who donated directly, responded to pleas over social media, who purchased some banana bread, or shopped at a garage sale in efforts to help us reach our goal. See you next year!
