AIDS Walk/Run 2020


About Volunteer

  • Volunteer at AIDS Walk/Run

Come join us at  for the 28th Annual AIDS Walk/Run on June 7th, 2020. This time it's VIRTUAL!

This is a milestone year for this event as we mark the upcoming 2020 End the Epidemic initiative by New York State Governor, Andrew Cuomo. The 2020 AIDS Walk/Run provides us with a moment to celebrate our triumphs over HIV/AIDS, remember those loved ones lost to the epidemic, and support education to continue to prevent the disease from spreading.

Help us continue the 28 year legacy of supporting HIV/AIDS prevention and programming in Central New York and help lead the charge against substance use, poverty, and stand up for LGBTQ equality.
