LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX18) — The annual Lexington AIDS Walk was held Sunday. This was the first time in two years that the walk was held due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The walk was started to help raise more awareness for HIV, AIDS, develop long-term solutions, and take an approach to hopefully put an end to the disease.

"So now we're back together to help continue to raise that awareness. It's all a public health issue. It's similar to COVID. We're still fighting HIV. It's been around a long time and we have a lot of work to do," said Jon Parker who is the Executive Director of AVOL Kentucky.
