17th Annual AIDSWALK.  That's right it’s Fall in Tucson again. The weather is beautiful and we can say so long to those hot summer days. What better way to celebrate than to come join the Community Service Board and Pride Law for this year’s AIDSWALK. This has been a popular event in the past so come on out for a good cause and a little exercise. Students, faculty and staff are invited to join the College of Law team for the annual AIDSWALK on Sunday morning, October 16, at Rillito River Park. This 4K walk is Tucson's largest AIDS-related fundraising event and will benefit AIDS prevention and care services for the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation. We will meet at the law school at 7:30 a.m. and then head up to Rillito Park for the Walk. We are also looking for people who would like to make donations for the Walk. Help us beat our donation total of $880 last year! If you would like to participate, please sign up at the table in the lobby this week. EVERYONE is invited to walk, though this year there is a $10 minimum donation for those wishing to walk. If you do not wish to walk you are still welcome to make a donation in any amount. Those people wishing to walk and not making the $10 donation, please feel free to place your name and contact information in the Walker Raffle Pumpkin for a drawing. On Thursday, Oct. 13, we will draw names based on the surplus money donated. Those people selected will be invited to walk.
