More than 6,000 participants walked, ran and strolled with their dogs in downtown Phoenix last month to raise $327,379 for 19 Valley-based HIV/AIDS service providers.

Since 2007, AIDS Walk Phoenix & 5K Run has raised more than $1.6 million, which has been evenly distributed by Aunt Rita’s Foundation, the nonprofit agency that organizes the event.

In addition to AIDS Walk Phoenix & 5 Run, Aunt Rita’s signature events include SAVORlife, a month-long event during which individuals across the Valley host dinners for their friends, either at home, at restaurants or even at workplaces.
