AIDSWALK is such an important event for us and we couldn’t wait any longer to share it with you. Our traditional community event to honor those we have lost too soon and those that are living with HIV/AIDS is near and dear to us. In order to continue this tradition while maintaining our clients, supporters, and volunteers’ safety a top priority, we will hold the entire event outdoors on October 23, 2021. We are still awaiting the final approval for the venue location, but will be able to share that with you shortly. We hope you will join us!

AIDSWALK will be in person this year!

Registration is Now Open!

Once you register, your walk experience starts immediately.

You will receive a link to resources and videos on how to fundraise, engage your community to support your goal, and even some tips on how to get others involved.

As a registered participant, you will have access to weekly emails that may contain offers from local businesses, information on AIDSWALK contests, fun educational videos, and more!

If walking during the day of the event still doesn’t feel comfortable to you, you are encouraged complete your walk whenever and wherever it is convenient for you! This means, that you can participate regardless of your current location, even if you’re not in Tucson. You will be part of a global effort!
