This year's AIDS Run & Walk Chicago, hosted by the AIDS Foundation of Chicago ( AFC ) and benefiting 35 other community organizations—known as CommunityDirect partners—on Saturday, Sept. 26, at Chicago's Soldier Field.

This year's message is "Put your foot down." In a statement, AFC President/CEO John Peller said, "We want supporters to put their foot down and make a difference in this epidemic, especially among communities most impacted by HIV."

The 35 CommunityDirect partners that will raise funds through this year's event will receive 90 percent of all money raised by their teams. Last year, the 32 CommunityDirect teams raised a combined $270,000.

Event registration is $40 in advance for 5K walkers, and $50 for 5K or 10K runners. To register as an individual or as a team, or to donate to a CommunityDirect team, visit AIDSRunWalk.org or call 312-334-0946. Online registration ends Sept. 20.
