Local non-profit raises money to provide healthcare to uninsured adults

The SLO Noor Clinic hosted its Third Annual "A Journey By Foot" charity walk Saturday morning.

The event started in Mission Plaza, and from there, participants could choose two different walks to go on.

Proceeds benefit the clinic, which provides free health care to uninsured adults. Right now, patients have to wait over three months to get an appointment because the clinic doesn't have enough funding.

"Currently, we are open two and a half half days, which is not nearly enough, but in order to do that we need funding. We need more support to open it five days," said Ahmad Nooristani, the CEO and Founder of the foundation.

The clinic opened back in October 2011. Since then, they've helped over 2000 people.

They're currently building a new dental clinic.
