The new, smaller, more “intimate” Seattle AIDS Walk circled Volunteer Park and stayed off city streets Saturday with a charity walk and picnic to raise funds to help those living with HIV and AIDS. CHS stopped by to see the walk and to watch for those who stepped up enough to earn “Queen” crowns by raising $1,000 or more in pledges. Saturday’s walk was the 32nd year for the fundraiser benefitting Lifelong that typically raises more than $200,000 for the nonprofit. You can still give here if you would like to help.

While the needs around HIV and AIDS have shifted over the years, a Capitol Hill project is underway to mark the lives lost and honor the past. The AIDS Memorial Pathway project will connect Capitol Hill Station’s mixed-use developments to Cal Anderson Park when construction is completed.
