The AIDS Walk is an important San Francisco Event that helps to raise money for HIV programs in the Bay Area.
This San Francisco Event is the biggest fundraiser of its kind in Northern California. Since its inception in 1987, the AIDS Walk has raised an incredible $86 million for HIV services and programs. While that’s an impressive number, there is still much work to be done. That’s why this year, once again, tens of thousands will walk to raise even more money to fund these vital programs.
Individuals and teams will take part in the 10K walk to raise money, but there is more to this San Francisco Event than just the walk. Participants will also find ways to have some fun after the walk. The KidZone will open at 10:30 a.m. and feature lots of fun things for the little ones to do. A post-walk concert will start at 12:30 p.m.
Last year, more than 20,000 walkers participated, and the crowd is expected to be at least that big again this year. The 2015 AIDS Walk raised $2.3 million. The money raised during this year’s Event will go to benefit Project Open Hand, Project Inform, Ward 86 at San Francisco General Hospital, and other programs throughout the area.
There is no fee to register to participate in this San Francisco Event, but all participants are asked to do some fundraising. This can be done by asking friends, family, and co-workers to sponsor your walk. You’ll find lots of fundraising advice on the AIDS Walk website. Registration can be completed online. There is no required minimum fundraising goal, but those who raise at least $1,000 will earn Star Walker status and receive some special perks.
