AIDS WALK Charlotte 2021, celebrating 25 years, is going virtual again this year but that doesn't mean the fundraising and need aren't real, it's just the community that's virtual. AIDS WALK Charlotte raises funds for services and programs RAIN provides to the Charlotte metro area. For the safety of our community, this year’s walk is virtual but with a twist. We will have a livestream program the morning of Saturday, May 1 and several predetermined routes available for you and your team to walk, safely (you can also just walk in your neighborhood).

We can't wait to see all your social media post on Saturday, May 1 and the predetermined walk routes will vary in distance - stay tuned for the full listing of locations and routes.


The walk routes are suggestions and options for you to STEP UP and STEP OUT on Saturday, May 1. These predetermined routes are not managed or affiliated with RAIN or AIDS WALK Charlotte. These routes are just options for you to take if you don't want to walk your neighborhood or the trail you usually take.
