Chattanooga CARES’s 23rd Annual Strides of March is set for Saturday, March 24, at Renaissance Park. The event will kick-off at noon.
"The first Strides of March was held on March 24, 1996. At that time, Chattanooga and the world was facing a new and unknown virus. Through medical advancements and the hard work of advocates, much has changed. This year the focus of the event is to celebrate how far we have come in the battle against HIV.
"The afternoon celebration will be filled with live music from Priscilla & Little RicKee.
Heaven & Ale will be providing some of their amazing ales, and Chatterbox Café will be cooking up some of this area’s best barbeque," officials said.
“Strides of March has long been a staple of our organization,” said Shannon Stephenson, Chattanooga CARES’s CEO. “It’s a chance for our community to come together in support of those impacted by HIV.”
