The largest HIV/AIDS fundraiser in the Southeast, the 29th annual AIDS Walk Atlanta and Music Festival, is coming to Piedmont Park next Sunday (September 29)!
Participants of the 5K, hosted by AID Atlanta, will run or walk to help raise over $750,000 of critical funds needed by the nine participating local HIV/AIDS service organizations. The 3.2 mile scenic run/walk through Piedmont Park and Midtown will be followed by a community festival filled with live music and entertainment, food trucks, beverages, the AIDS Memorial Quilt display, free health information, and more. Free and confidential rapid HIV testing will also be available throughout the event.
Entertainment headliners include Monica, Amara La Negra, Eric Bellinger, DJ Carisma, Raheem DeVaughn, and Grace Gibson.
Walker and runner registration opens at 10 am, with the opening ceremony and remarks following at 11 am. Runners of the 5k will start at 11:30 am and walkers step off at 11:45 am. The event closes out with the entertainment and festival at 2 pm.
AID Atlanta has already raised two-thirds of their goal – $500,031 of $750,000. If you want to help them reach their goal, you can register for the 5K or simply make a donation here.
