The Utah AIDS Foundation has several fundraisers each year. One is the Oscar Night and the other is the Salt Lake Walk for Life.

The Walk for Life usually happens in the middle of September on a Saturday morning. For the past two years the Walk for Life starts at City Creek Center in Salt Lake City and then goes down by Pioneer Park then ends up by Harmons Grocery by the City Creek Center. People bring their dogs and friends to the walk. There are also companies that donate and their employees will march in the Walk for Life. This year I noticed American Express, eBay, and Delta Airlines as some of the donors.

Sister Dottie S. Dixon was on hand as the emcee for this year’s Walk. Sister Dottie S. Dixon is character created and acted by actor Charles Lynn Frost. The character Dottie is the Mormon mother of a gay son named Donnie and she is from Spanish Fork, Utah.

Sister Dottie is a regular guest on radio’s X96 Radio from Hell morning show. I’ve also photographed her play “The Second Coming of Sister Dottie”

Cheer Salt Lake was on hand with several other Cheer squads from San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle. They perform some pretty death defying stunts and later that day were in Provo to perform for Provo Pride.

This year, Sister Dottie led the group in warm up exercises with the LDS Primary musical classic “Heads, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes” and followed by a lesson on twerking. We all gotta learn how to twerk!
