The Annual Scotiabank AIDS Walk For LIfe took place Saturday, Sept. 20, on a busy afternoon in downtown Cranbrook. The annual event is part of the ongoing efforts by ANKORS (AIDS Network Kootenay Outreach and Support Society) to raise awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding AIDS and HIV. ANKORS conducts lots of educational presentations, operates a needles exchange program, and raises funds to help East Kootenay residents with HIV travel to Vancouver for treatments.  On Saturday, the walk wended its way from Rotary Park through the downtown core, and back to the park for activities, festivities and music.
