LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Walking to help people in our area living with HIV and AIDS.

The 23rd annual Louisville AIDS Walk was held Saturday at Iroquois Park.

Money raised is given to several agencies in Louisville and southern Indiana that help people living with HIV and AIDS.

Services that include food, housing, medical assistance and transportation to appointments.

An event coordinator says the day is also about raising awareness.

"A lot of people have got the notion now that HIV is no longer a serious illness. But it is. There's more people contracting HIV/AIDS than there ever has been," Daniel Coe said.

The event also featured free HIV and flu testing.
