National AIDS Memorial - 2916
Join the National AIDS Memorial’s 2020 AIDS Walk Virtual Team.
Support the Grove, the Quilt, and other programs!
Since the darkest days of the AIDS pandemic, AIDS Walk has helped dozens of AIDS organizations raise vital funds to support programs that provide direct services, memorialize and remember, educate and inform – all toward a common goal of ending HIV/AIDS. Together, we can continue our progress toward that goal -- even as we face the threat of COVID-19!
COVID-19 is reshaping our world. The National AIDS Memorial Grove and the AIDS Memorial Quilt are facing their most significant financial challenge since the early days of the AIDS crisis. Dozens of fundraising events, Quilt displays, volunteer workdays, and other gatherings have been canceled or postponed.
Because AIDS Walk will be virtual this year, the National AIDS Memorial has an opportunity to replace much of that lost revenue by building the largest and most financially successful AIDS Walk team ever! As a virtual walker, you can participate, ask friends for donations and pledges, and support the National AIDS Memorial – even while sheltered in place!
The National AIDS Memorial and the AIDS Memorial Quilt now share a common mission. The funds you raise will allow us to continue to tell the stories they both hold, ensure the lessons of the AIDS crisis are forever remembered, and provide hope for a brighter tomorrow.
We invite you to join the National AIDS Memorial team today as a Virtual Walker for San Francisco AIDS Walk on July 19, 2020. The funds you raise as a walker will directly support the Grove, the Quilt, and our other significant programs!
