AIDS WALK Charlotte 2022 is returning to in-person on Saturday, May 7 and I am excited to be supporting such a great cause that is showing compassion for people living with HIV and those at risk. We are coming together as a community 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.
Every dollar raised through AIDS WALK Charlotte supports the services and programs RAIN provides to the Charlotte metro area.
