POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Hundreds came out to the Walkway Over the Hudson on Saturday, raising money for those living with HIV/AIDS.
Organizations like the LGBTQ Center and the AIDS-Related Community Services have seen a decrease in funding since federal funding is being shifted to other states.
The 20th annual HIV/AIDS Walk helps cut down treatment costs and bills, when estimates say it can cost anywhere from $400,000 to $700,000 per person for lifetime treatment.
ARCS Executive Director Jeffrey Kraus said, "The more funding we can raise through public ventures like this, the better we can help people stay in their apartments, receive adequate nutrition, receive transportation and other emergency services."
Organizers were expecting to raise more than $40,000 at Saturday's walk.
