NEW YORK: AIDS Community Resources Kicks Off Annual Paint the Town Red Campaign


Your News Now (Central New York) (05.28.2013) Aids Weekly Plus

In an effort to raise awareness of the continuing danger of HIV/AIDS and other STDs, officials have painted a red stripe down South Salina Street in Syracuse, N.Y., to kick off this year’s AIDS Community Resources annual Paint the Town Red campaign. Onondaga County Health Commissioner Dr. Cynthia Morrow said that, with gonorrhea rates at two times what they were two years ago, it is especially important to “work together as a community to prevent these preventable outcomes.” The group is observing its 30th anniversary of work in the Central New York region, and will be staging their annual AIDS walk and run on June 2 at Beaver Lake.
