Each year, Health Sciences Charter School has participated in the Buffalo AIDS Walk. This event happens in May of every year and benefits Evergreen Health Services and their ongoing support for people living with HIV and AIDS. This yeah, the walk is on May 5th.
As a Health Sciences based school, we take this as an opportunity to learn about the medical and cultural aspects of HIV and AIDS. While it is a fundraiser, we do not ask that youth fundraise unless they want to – instead, our focus is on education and exposure to community resources. Walking in the event is absolutely free and also great exercise!
This year, we’d like to open the opportunity for anyone in the Health Sciences community to walk. This way, the whole family can join in. The walk usually lasts about an hour and then, afterwards, there are free food and refreshments along with an awards ceremony. More information is available at aidswalkbuffalo.org Health Sciences has won an award the past two years – personally, I’m hoping we can win another one this year!

You can sign up to walk or you can donate to a student. We encourage people to donate to individual students because, for example, if someone raises $50, they receive a free t-shirt as well.
Students can sign up with parent/guardian permission, but a parent/guardian does not have to attend. The event route is posted on the website and while faculty/staff will be present, participants must find their own transportation to and from the event.
