What: The Farha Foundation, Quebec's leading HIV/AIDS fundraising organization, recognizes 20 years of founder Ron Farha's passing, and calls on Quebecers to join in on the 21st edition of ÇA MARCHE, the province's largest annual walk for the cause.

Ron died on July 12, 1993, at age 36 - only two months before the first edition of the walk, leaving the legacy he built in the hands of his mother, sisters and the committed Foundation members and volunteers.
