A ministry of the Sisters of Mercy providing hope, healing, and a home for persons living with HIV.
27th Annual Walk for AIDS to benefit House of Mercy
Saturday, September 12, 2020
We invite you to support House of Mercy's mission by participating in our Virtual 2020 Walk for AIDS!
Date: Saturday, September 12, 2020
Time: Kick-off at 9:00 am
Place: Virtual event page - https://app.mobilecause.com/vf/2020Walk
House of Mercy has provided hope, healing, and a home for 340 men and women living with HIV since its founding in 1991. We fulfill a critical need in the state of North Carolina, providing compassionate care for low-income people with HIV who can no longer care for themselves and face homelessness. By donating or raising funds in support of your walk, you will help dramatically change the lives of those we serve.
Our goal this year is to raise $50,000. In addition to corporate sponsorships, we need individuals and teams to participate and raise money in order to meet our fundraising goal.
