Showing Your Support for the Annual Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life Has Never Been Easier!

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/15/14 -- When it comes to getting involved in the 2014 Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life, Canadians can now donate and register for the 'Easiest Charity Walk of All Time' in mere minutes.

The 2014 Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life, taking place between September 13 and 21, 2014, has updated its online registration and donation software, making it faster and easier to use than ever before, with the highest level of internet security.

To get started, donors and participants are asked to visit www.aidswalkforlife.ca to locate the nearest Walk to their community. With a click of a button, Canadians can then choose to donate or raise funds for the Walk. It takes only a few minutes to register for fundraising, and even less time to donate. The Walk's updated registration system can also be accessed through your existing Facebook account using handheld devices, including tablets and smartphones.

The annual Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life will take place in approximately 40 communities across the country and help participants show solidarity for over 71, 000 Canadians living with HIV/AIDS. All proceeds from the Walk help support services for those living with, affected by, or at risk of contracting HIV/AIDS in communities nationwide.

"It's never been easier to get involved in the Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life," said Monique Doolittle-Romas, Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian AIDS Society. "We hope to see more and more Canadians take advantage of this year's enhanced registration portal to show their support for the thousands of People Living with HIV/AIDS. It only takes a few short minutes to register or donate, but this small gesture goes a long way in making a lasting difference to Canadians whose lives are touched by HIV/AIDS."

Canadians can also support the Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life by purchasing a bottle of award- winning Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio from a local LCBO which donates $0.50 toward the Walk for each sale.
