UTK College of Social Work, Nashville, developed a team of walkers to participate in the Nashville Cares Aids Walk. The team of approximately 50 people exceeded their fundraising goals, raising $7,026 to be donated to Nashville Cares, whose mission is to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Middle Tennessee.  The organization works to achieve this through education, advocacy and support for those at risk for or living with HIV.

MSSW student Erica Lewis (left) was the top earner of the CSW walkers. Here she is pictured with the Nashville campus MSSW director, Kate Chaffin.


The team placed third overall in the event for their fundraising efforts in the fight against AIDS and received an award for their role in serving the community.
