Annual AIDS Walk is October 3 at Leadbetter Beach

The 19th Heart & Sole AIDS Walk/Run raises funds for Pacific Pride Foundation's HIV programs and services

On Saturday, Oct. 3, beginning at 10 a.m., more than 500 walkers will begin their 10k journey along the beach on Cabrillo Boulevard in Santa Barbara as participants in the 19th Annual Heart & Sole AIDS Walk and Run.

Every dollar raised stays in Santa Barbara County and benefits Pacific Pride Foundation’s HIV programs and services, including HIV education and prevention programs, two food pantries for HIV positive clients and their families, free individual and group therapy, primary health care and quality of life programs serving more than 500 individuals annually.

The AIDS Walk is one of PPF’s biggest fundraisers, and in this time of dire staff and funding cutbacks, the services on which PPF’s clients rely are in vital need of continued support.

To walk, form a team or make a pledge, call the Santa Barbara office: 805.963.3636, Extension 103; or the Santa Maria office: 805.349.9947, Extension 103.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
