KNIT.

The fourth annual Red Scarf Campaign, leading up to World AIDS Day on December 1st, launches on November 26th. Expert knitting groups have joined the Gilbert Centre to decorate the downtowns with red scarves.

Several events are being planed in various locations, including:

  • Barrie
  • Orillia
  • Midland, Penetanguishene, Tiny, and Tay
  • Bracebridge and Gravenhurst
  • Additional possible locations to be determined

HIV/AIDS Awareness Week and the Red Scarf Project promotes education as key in eliminating stigma and discrimination.

Some facts:

  • Over 70,000 Canadians are living with HIV.
  • 25% of people living with HIV are unaware.
  • HIV is now considered a chronic disease because of medical advancements.

Let’s get talking about HIV!
