    23rd Annual AIDS Walk in Palm Springs

    Nearly 1,200 walkers and runners are expected to participate in Saturday's 23rd annual AIDS Walk in Palm Springs.

    The event, which will feature a 5K run for the first time, is set for 10 a.m. Saturday at Ruth Hardy Park, with registration scheduled for 8 a.m., said Barry Dayton, a spokesman for Desert AIDS Project.

    The AIDS Walk is aimed to raise funds for services provided by the Desert AIDS Project to people living with HIV/AIDS in the Coachella Valley.

    Walkers and runners will take separate routes around downtown Palm Springs, he said.

    A health and fitness fair will be held following the walk and run, featuring 30 companies and organizations with information about nutrition, illness prevention, free HIV testing and medical treatments.
