Aid for AIDS of Nevada has led the AIDS Walk for over twenty years. Individual Walkers and Walk Team numbers have grown significantly, sponsorships by local businesses and organizations continue to increase, and public awareness rises with every walk.
Last year, more than 9,000 people walked raising over $450,000. Over 250 corporate and community teams raised 70% of the total funds collected. Las Vegas PRIDE is proud to be counted among those teams.
Today there is newfound hope in the fight against AIDS – but still no cure. Some people with HIV/AIDS are living longer thanks to new therapies. Tragically, the new treatments do not work for everyone, and HIV continues to spread at an alarming rate.
Join team Las Vegas PRIDE & SHARE Nightclub as we walk to fight HIV/AIDS and do it in memory of Tracy Savage one of the members of the Las Vegas PRIDE Board who lost the fight against AIDS in 2012. Tracy got involved with SNAPI during the reign of Miss Las Vegas PRIDE 2009 JewDi Vine. He joined the parade committee, helped make costumes, performed at benefit shows and soon joined the parade committee on PRIDE road trips. Tracy was then asked to take a seat on the Las Vegas PRIDE board and joined the volunteer committee. He was with Las Vegas PRIDE from that day on. Tracy joined the board to make a difference. He wanted to help teach and do outreach for the younger generation, especially if they are HIV POSITIVE, as he was since 1994. He said that he was “not here to preach, and not so much teach… but to share my experiences and how they can come over any negatives; how to be yourself and still live a fabulous life.”
