Last year approximately 400,000 children under the age of 15 worldwide were infected with HIV, bringing the number of chil- dren living with the virus at the end of 1996 to 830,000. Hundreds of thousands of HIV-positive ba- bies are born every year to HIV- positive mothers around the world. The Joint United Nations Pro- gram on HIV/AIDS, in conjunc- tion with the American Associa- tion for World Health, has desig- nated "Give Children Hope in a World with AIDS" as the theme for this year's World AIDS Day. Traditionally, World AIDS Day is Day planning for resort Oct. 14 observed every year on December 1; this year's events will mark the 10th anniversary of the obser- vance. A committee will form to plan the events in Sussex County for World AIDS Day 1997, which will include a candlelight march and a memorial celebration on Monday, Dec. 1. The committee's first planning session will be Tuesday, Oct. 14, at 7 p.m., at the office of the Sussex County AIDS Committee (SCAC), 107A South Street, Rehoboth Beach. For more information or direc- tions call the SCAC office at (302) 644-1090. Make a Difference Day slated Oct. 25 Make A Difference Day is a day of national attention focused on what people can do in just one day to make life better for millions of people. "USA Weekend" maga- zine, 496 local newspapers that carry the magazine and the Points of Light Foundation and its net- work of volunteer centers are part- ners in this event and host of Make A Difference Day. Last year, nearly 3,000 Delawareans participated in Make A Difference Day projects regis- tered with the Delaware State Of- fice of Volunteerism. Those wishing to get involved may plan or organize an event for their agency or workplace, recruit others, talk to family and friends and co-workers about sharing their time and talents on Make A Difference Day, then contact the Volunteer Link at 800-815-5465 or 302-577-6420. This year the theme is "Stop- ping Violence." However, the Delaware State Office of Volun- teerism is encouraging any and all volunteer projects that would "make a difference" in communi- ties. Examples include painting a peace mural, volunteering at a cri- sis shelter, making personal need packages for victims of abuse, making a commitment to mentor a child or adult. To help make a difference in the Cape Region, individuals are in- vited to donate the following items for Sussex County shelters: money; food; baby and children's items; including diapers, bottles, toys, and clothing; women's toi- letries; household items, including linens, towels, pots and pans, fur- niture. AHA Heart Walk slated for Sussex Oct. 11 Milford mayor Ronnie Rogers knows first-hand how devastating heart disease and stroke can be. That's why he's stepping out with hundreds of Sussex Countians in a walk to fight America's leading causes of death and disability. The Sussex Division American Heart Walk, set for Saturday, Oct. 11, at Redden State Forest, will step off at 10 a.m. Registration and check-in will begin at 9 a.m. A post-party featuring barbecue chicken will be served around 11:30 a.m. The American Heart Associa- tion-sponsored event is held in over 1,000 locations nationwide. Walkers collect donations from family, friends and co-workers to fund lifesaving cardiovascular re- search. Many of the walkers are heart disease, stroke and heart surgery survivors. They'll be hon- ored with special red caps to show that they're fighting back against these deadly diseases. More than 600 participants have already signed up to join in the fun of the 5K walk. Many area busi- nesses are promoting employee health and wellness by organizing company walking teams. The event participants aren't just walking for their health. They're raising desperately need- ed funds to support American Heart Association research and education programs. In return for these efforts, each walker who raises $100 and more will earn an American Heart Walk T-shirt and other great thank-you prizes. The goal of this year's walk is to raise $60,000. "I'm living proof that re- search matters," Rogers said. For more information, call the Sussex Division of the American Heart Association at 856-7386.
