Organizers of the upcoming AIDS/HIV walk are asking for support on Sunday, Oct. 20, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. For the past eight years, groups of students formed together to make a difference.

The group of students will venture an eight-mile walk in Philadelphia. Everyone involved with the walk will gather in front of the art museum.

Participants will walk, roller-blade, ride a bike or just about anything else they want to do. Everyone involved will be focused on their goal: to make a difference by raising money.

AIDS is a serious disease that requires major funding to help make a difference. To help reach the goal of raising as much money as possible, there will also be a bake sale on Oct. 17.

Students who decide to help can register in the Wolfington Center.

Danelle Kressirer, sophomore, said “I was interested in getting involved with activities.”

Kressirer and Elizabeth Ritter, sophomore, are forming the walking team. They wanted to get involved, and they did. These two students are running the team that Cabrini sends to the walk.

In recent years there has been a turnout of between 15 and 70 students. As of Oct. 10, there are about 40 people signed up to walk.

“Cabrini has an inspiration from the heart to make a difference. Being a part of Cabrini means taking action in helping others. The AIDS walk was a first in ways of bringing public awareness and support for a good cause,” Mary Laver, coordinator of community outreach, said.
