The supporters of the Nebraska AIDS Walk started off the day by releasing red balloons.
Nebraska AIDS Walk supporters take a stroll around UNK to help support the Kearney chapter of the Nebraska AIDS Project (NAP). There are a lot of young people on campus, and it is a great way to reach out to them and provide education, said case manager Andrew Brackett.

There is a lot of people who are not educated, Mendez said. The more people who are educated, the better.
The Nebraska AIDS Walk began with a red balloon release at the Fine Arts Building. The purpose of the annual walk is to "raise awareness about those living with HIV in central Nebraska and to help raise much-needed funds," said case manager Andrew Brackett.
