The AIDS Walk and After Party were definitely the highlight of my September. Lifelong put on an amazing event with the Seattle AIDS Walk (the beautiful weather helped :))
This was the best walk I’ve participated in and with almost 3,500 people it was hard not to feel like we were a part of something great. Although many were walking in memory of friends and family that passed, the positive energy and optimism was undeniable throughout the walk.
Our team represented with face paint and stickers! My experience at the walk consisted of running around, meeting walkers and handing out stickers to promote the after party. It was a blast (everyone loves stickers apparently.)
The after party we threw at Grim’s was a huge success as well. Absolut donated their limited edition San Francisco Vodka and so a portion of the proceeds from their drinks went towards Lifelong AIDS Alliance. With our group, the drinks went fast and we raised an extra $600 through the after party.
Thanks to everyone who supported us for the walk, whether by donating, coming for a drink or walking with us! I’ll be sharing the final numbers of how much we raised for Lifelong and wrapping up our whole campaign this weekend.
