On Saturday August 11th 2012, Colorado hosted its 25th Annual AIDS Walk. The event comes together with participants taking pledges and registering to be a walker or a runner for the event. Then they use their pledge's and bodies to raise money from supporters in their community. On the day of, thousands of people gathered together to help support the battle against AIDS and show the love and affection towards all those that are affected by AIDS. Their total donations raised was over $270,000! It was a truly beautiful sight to see, a congregation of all different walks of life gathered in one place, with one goal, and one common consideration. Whether they were there to support family and loved ones, or to raise awareness, or even just to show that they care, one could tell that everyone's heart was there for the cause!
