‘The Get a Life Maze’ coming to Albany State

ALBANY, Ga. — In recognition of World AIDS Day, the “Get a Life!” Maze will be held featured Thursday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Albany State University’s HPER Gymnasium.

An interactive realistic maze for 18 to 25 year olds, the maze is where decisions and choices have life altering consequences. The goal of the maze is to complete school without having an STD, becoming pregnant, getting arrested or dying. This is a simulation game that emphasizes that decisions people make do affect their lives.

The event is part of “We Are One!” ASU Project and is being held in conjunction with World AIDS Day to raise awareness about importance of ‘safer sex’ in order to prevent unplanned pregnancy, HIV, and other sexually transmitted infections among 18-25 year olds.

Free confidential HIV testing will be offered by New Beginnings, an AIDS risk reduction center.

In addition, the Center for the African American Male will perform a skit.

Co-hosts for the event are: ASU HPER Club and ASU HPER Department., the sponsors are Albany State University, Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital Network of Trust, and the Taking Time for Teens: Teen Pregnancy Prevention Coalition.

Funding is provided by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
