AIDS WALK Charlotte 2022 is the largest HIV fundraising walk in the Carolinas and since 1997 has raised $3.1 million to support people living with HIV and those at risk. Every dollar raised through AIDS WALK Charlotte supports the services and programs RAIN provides to the Charlotte metro area.
AIDS WALK Charlotte brings our community together to remember those who we've lost, celebrate those that are living fully with HIV today, and to anticipate the end of HIV in our community. This event shows the compassion Charlotte has for our neighbors who lack full access to resources, health and wellness, and who suffer from HIV stigma yet today.
RAIN is one of the largest HIV nonprofits in the Carolinas providing direct client services and is widely recognized for its unique model and expertise in working with persons living with HIV and AIDS.
MISSION: RAIN empowers persons living with HIV and those at risk to be healthy and stigma free.
VISION: RAIN envisions ending HIV in our community.
Housing IS healthcare.
Multiple studies show housing stability plays an important role in optimal health outcomes. In late 2020, RAIN and The Havens partnered together to continue to provide safe, affordable housing for individuals living with HIV or other disabilities. The Havens is an important facet of Charlotte’s scarce affordable housing network.
The Havens provides access to safe and affordable housing for people experiencing homelessness who are living with HIV or other disabilities.
Thanks to the generous and supportive corporate partners, we have seven Match Days coming up in April. This is a great and easy way to double your fundraising efforts!
