The 22nd annual AIDS Walk & Run San Diego will take place on Sunday, Sept. 25, in Balboa Park. Registration is now open for the event – the largest one-day HIV/AIDS fundraiser in San Diego County – at www.aidswalksd.org.
Last year, nearly 8,000 people walked or donated, helping to generate more than $500,000 for 14 San Diego area HIV/AIDS service organizations.
AIDS Walk San Diego is San Diego's largest one-day HIV/AIDS fundraiser and the biggest non-governmental financial provider for HIV/AIDS in San Diego County. Dozens of agencies -- serving thousands of clients -- rely on money raised at the annual AIDS Walk to help provide essential prevention and care programs to thousands of men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS. Established as AIDS Walk San Diego in 1989, this event took place for two years prior as the Walk for Life.
Through a unique funding partnership with the San Diego HIV Funding Collaborative, AIDS Walk San Diego is able to increase the impact of the dollars raised at the event. Funds from the Walk are combined with donations from other philanthropists and foundations to qualify for matching funds. Since 1989, AIDS Walk San Diego has raised more than $8 million. Last year, in partnership with the San Diego HIV Funding Collaborative, more than $500,000 was distributed to 14 community-based HIV/AIDS service organizations in San Diego County.
