On Sunday, June 3, families from all over Rhode Island will participate in the Eighth annual AIDS Orphan Care Walkathon at Lincoln Woods State Park.
The walkathon begins with registration at 10 a.m., and walk at 11 a.m. Online registration is also available at www.AIDSorphancarewalk.dojiggy.com.
AIDS Orphan Care improves the lives of orphans and HIV-positive children by partnering with effective, grassroots orphan-care projects in Lesotho, Southern Africa. Projects currently supported include:
1) Mamelo Primary School, providing a free K-7 education to over 200 orphans and HIV-positive children.
2) The Peanut Butter Project, distributing peanut butter to malnourished HIV-positive children through Baylor Pediatric HIV Clinics.
AIDS Orphan Care was founded by Deborah Kutenplon, a Nurse Midwife from Rhode Island who spent a year working at an HIV clinic in Lesotho in 2008-2009. Lesotho is a tiny country in Southern Africa with the world’s 3rd highest HIV rate. One in four adults is HIV-positive. With a total population of 2.1 million people, Lesotho has over 100,000 AIDS orphans.
AIDS Orphan Care supports the essential needs of orphans in Lesotho—food, shelter, clothing, education and health care. AIDS Orphan Care, an all-volunteer project, is fiscally sponsored by the International Child Resource Institute (www.icrichild.org).

The Seventh Annual Esophageal Cancer Walk/Run is hosted by The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity working to raise awareness, encourage early detection and to fund research of esophageal cancer…in hopes of a cure.™
In 2015, The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation was able to award esophageal cancer research funding for the very first time! Since 2015, over twenty researchers have inquired about funding.
The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation has also raised national AND international awareness since 2011. Your continued support directly impacts and sustains this mission!

Learn the facts about esophageal cancer
-Esophageal cancer has increased over 600% and is considered the fastest growing cancer in the US.
-Risk factors include:
· Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD, acid reflux, chronic heartburn),
· poor nutrition,
· tobacco use,
· excessive alcohol use,
· Barrett’s esophagus.
-As one of the deadliest cancers, esophageal cancer has an overall five year survival rate of only 18.8%.
-There are no routine or standard screenings to improve early detection of esophageal cancer.
-Symptoms often arise late, once the cancer is considered advanced or “distant” (spread to lymph nodes and other organs.)
-Stage IV esophageal cancer has a survival rate of only 4.6%.
-Despite all of these facts, esophageal cancer research is extremely underfunded.
