Team Detroit AIDS Walk Fundraiser

Greetings from Detroit!

One week ago Team Detroit spent Team Day raising money for AIDS Walk Michigan, which will take place on October 3rd.

Our team set up at a busy Kroger's grocery store. We set up a table with information on the walk as well as pamphlets on HIV/AIDS, STD's and condoms. The night before Team Day we asked the youth at a members agency to help by making posters, which we hung in and around Kroger's. Throughout the day we split up in teams of 2 with one team manning the table and entrance and exits. The other teams walked the mall surrounding Kroger.

In just 7 hours we raised $310! Just as important, we were able to increase awareness and engage in very important conversations with members of our community! We're really excited and proud of our efforts that day. We're looking forward to walking in the AIDS Walk Michigan on Belle Isle October 3rd.
