Esk’etemc First Nation is inviting the public to participate in its second annual Esk’etemc AIDS Walk.

The purpose of the event is to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS.

This will be an excellent opportunity for people to get some exercise, have some fun and make a difference in stopping the spread of HIV/AIDS, say organizers.

The seven kilometre walk/bike/run will be held the morning of April 21 starting at 9 a.m. from RR2 on Dog Creek Road and will be followed by brunch at the Youth Centre, with education on how HIV can be prevented.

“We welcome anyone who is interested to participate,” say Margaret Samson, AIDS representative, Stella Nilsson community health nurse, and Joyce Johnson Health director.

“Please let us know that you are attending so we can order the necessary food.”

To register for the walk or more information contact Stella or Margaret at 1-250-440-5651.
