LifeWalk raises record $415K on day of event; total to be announced Nov. 7

Sunday’s 22nd annual LifeWalk set a record for the amount raised on the day of the event, which was more than $415,000.

Fundraising amounts for the whole year are still being calculated and will be announced Nov. 7 along with the top teams at the wrap-up party.

Marvin Green, event co-chair, told Instant Tea that the turnout was more than 3,000 people, but he thought participation on Sunday down because of the cold weather.

“We want to send a huge Thank You! for the tremendous dedication and generosity shown by our sponsors and Teams this year,” Green said in a statement.

Fellow Co-Chair Kelly Green said, “Wow. We are so grateful to our volunteers, walkers and community for helping us raise awareness of HIV/AIDS and the help that is available to people in need.”
