Martin Luther King, Jr. once said that, “everything that is done in the world is done by hope.” For those who are living with HIV/ AIDS, hope is what keeps them going. Help keep their hope alive by participating in the AIDS Walk / Run Philly!
The event will be a 12K walk and a 5K run. There is a registration fee of $50, but participants are encouraged to reach out to sponsors and raise more money for our friends, family, and neighbors. You can register as an individual or form a team of five or more walkers, runners, or volunteers.
Every nine and a half minutes, someone in the United States is infected with HIV. In the Delaware Valley alone, over 30,000 people are living with HIV/ AIDS. Philadelphia’s infection rate is five times more than the national average. Your participation in the walk on October 21st will help raise awareness and provide funding for health care services and other life-saving programs!
The Philadelphia Aids Walk is also looking for volunteers to help make this event successful, and is always accepting donations!
