World AIDS Day is coming up in a few weeks.

WXPR’s Natalie Jablonski spoke with Pastor Nancy Richmond, who will be leading this weekend’s vigil, about why it’s being held. 

It’s at 4 o’clock Sunday in the chapel at Langlade Hospital in Antigo.

Organizers say it’s the only event of its kind in the region.

Body Found Near Antigo

The person was found on a trail north of Highway 64 near a bicycle. So far, Langlade County authorities haven’t released any information other than to confirm a body was found on private property near Western Road and Hazel Road just west of Antigo, so we don’t know if the cause of death was related to the bicycle or something completely different. Dispatchers say Sheriff William Greening plans to release more information Friday morning.
