The AIDS Walk & Music Festival Baltimore 2019 surpassed its goal to raise $150,000 to support HIV services of Chase Brexton Health Care and its community partners.
More than 500 walkers, sponsors, performers, and volunteers gathered at Power Plant Live! on Sunday, June 9th to take steps to end HIV and AIDS in Baltimore. They were welcomed to the event by Chase Brexton head Patrick Mutch, special guest Montel Williams, and emcees Kai Jackson and Brandi Proctor of WBFF Fox 45.
Donations will continue to be accepted through June 30th; visit BaltimoreAIDSWalk.org to make a contribution.
“So many runners, walkers, volunteers, and teams came out to support our AIDS Walk & Music Festival,” said Chase Brexton’s Becky Frank. “The funds raised by their efforts will make a huge difference in our fight to increase access to critical medications, prevent new HIV cases in Baltimore and provide care to those already affected.”
Chase Brexton was joined in its efforts by its ten community partners, whose own teams raised funds for the event and kept half of their proceeds to continue their fight against HIV. Community partners included AIDS Action Baltimore, Gilchrist, the Jacques Initiative, the John G. Bartlett Specialty Practice at Johns Hopkins Medicine, Moveable Feast, Planned Parenthood, the Pride Center of Maryland, Park West Health System, Project Please, and Total Health Care.
