AIDS WALK Charlotte 2024


On Saturday, May 18, AIDS WALK Charlotte will celebrate 28 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 $3.5 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.

Comfortable Shoes: Wear comfortable, sturdy shoes in good condition. Sandals or flip-flops aren't the best to be walking through Uptown Charlotte.

Layers: Depending on the weather, it may be slightly chilly in the morning. After you start walking you will probably begin to get warm - so dress in layers.

You must be a registered walker and individually raised at least $35 to receive an official AIDS WALK Charlotte 2024 t-shirt.


HONOR BEADS: Stop by our booth to grab your honor beads. Honor your loved ones and yourself while you walk. Various color honor beads acknowledge your personal connection to HIV and AIDS, and help you to identify others who may have the same connection.

PATCH STATION: Stop by our patch station to have your milestone patches ironed onto your AIDS WALK Charlotte 2023 t-shirt. A fun and simple way to showcase your fundraising successes!

PHOTO STATION: We have something NEW brewing for a photo opp so get those cameras ready!
