Superheros at Parkview Field for 22nd annual AIDS Walk

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - People dressed up as their favorite superheroes at Parkview Field, for the 22nd annual Northeast Indiana AIDS Walk on Saturday.

The walk is put on by the Positive Resource Connection, and serves as one of their biggest fundraiser to help people affected by HIV and AIDS.

Participants walked for just over a mile around downtown Fort Wayne for the event.

There was also music, food trucks, balloon artists, and a variety of other activities.

"HIV is still in existence and we still need to work to prevent new cases," says Positive Resource Connection Director Jeff Markley, "We want to make sure that people who are HIV positive lead long healthy lives and prevent it from becoming AIDS."

The walk raises over $40,000 every year for the cause.
