Sunday in Morristown was a banner day for New Jersey AIDS Services, which raised a record $57,000 at its annual NJ AIDS Walk,  according to Joann McEniry, chief operating officer of the nonprofit.

More than 300 walkers and 150 volunteers turned out, Joann added. Participants were welcomed by Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-11th Dist.) and Morristown First Lady Mary Dougherty.

New Jersey AIDS Services operates the Eric Johnson House, a transitional living facility established in Morristown in 1994 for men and women with HIV/AIDS.

Proceeds help support that endeavor. Donations still can be made at the AIDS Walk link above, said Joann.

This was the fourth year that AIDS Walks were held statewide (Ridgewood, Newark, Atlantic City and Asbury Park were the other locations), and the 23rd year that New Jersey AIDS Services / Eric Johnson House has staged a Walk in Morristown, she said.
