The crowd leaves the Highland side of the Walkway, headed towards Poughkeepsie.

The final tally isn’t yet complete, but as of Saturday, May 7th at the end of our 19th Annual Hudson Valley AIDS Walk, we had raised $52,514 at this year’s event! We announced the total at our official After-Party at Orient nightclub in Poughkeepsie to a crowd of 50 well-wishers and walkers. We doubled the amount of participating walkers, and the grand total is 150% more than our last AIDS Walk. We are very grateful to our volunteer committee of organizers, our sponsors, our volunteers, and everyone who came together on the Walkway Over the Hudson for this fantastic event!
