A Two-Mile Walk Over the Ringling Bridge
December 5, 2015
Trinity Charities (7225 Lockwood Ridge Road, Sarasota) presents the tenth annual AIDS Walk Sarasota/Manatee on Saturday, December 5. Funds raised during this walk will help Trinity Charities continue its work helping people affected by HIV/AIDS on the Florida Suncoast.
A breakfast is offered at registration and starts at 8 a.m. before the start of the walk at 9 a.m. from J.D. Hamel Park (2 Marina Plaza). The walk will last for two miles, and will take participants from the park and over the Ringling Bridge. The walk over the Ringling Bridge is iconic to the AIDS Walk Sarasota/Manatee and has been since walkers were permitted to cross the bridge back in 2013. Pet owners are encouraged to bring their dogs to the event, as they are permitted to walk with their owners and the other participants.
Trinity Charities’ mission is to “provide support, education, prevention and intervention for those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS and for those in temporary crisis.” The non-profit organization offers HIV testing, education, support, financial aid, and other services to people affected by HIV and AIDS in Sarasota and Manatee Counties.
