On Saturday, May 6, AIDS WALK Charlotte will celebrate 27 years of bringing our community to fight HIV stigma and raise funds for RAIN.
AIDS WALK Charlotte is the largest HIV fundraising walk in the Carolinas and since 1997, has raised over $3.3 million to support people living with HIV and those at risk. Every dollar raised stays in Charlotte to provide funds for services and programs RAIN provides to our community.
AIDS WALK Charlotte is a family affair (your two and four legged kids are welcomed) and open to all who want to participate. The walk is roughly two miles long and takes the average person around 30 minutes to complete.
