     Join Team Immanuel on Saturday, September 24th in our 12th annual walk to help prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS in Delaware. Did you know that senior citizens and young single women are among the fastest growing populations of new HIV/AIDS infections? Help us be a visible presence in our community as we join with thousands of others to walk for health. Registration starts at 9:00 a.m. at the Riverfront and Step-off is 10:00 a.m. The walk is level along the Riverfront on a wide paved surface so there are no hills and its stroller and wheelchair friendly! You can do the 3-mile stroll or take the short-cut or even just show up for our group photo. GROUP PHOTO is 9:45 a.m.! The main point is to be together and help raise money for an important cause.

     Please sign-up on the bulletin board in the foyer and you can also register on-line at 302.652.6776.
