About AIDS Walk Atlanta & 5K Run 2016



On Sunday, October 16, 2016,, thousands of Atlantans will unite in the largest and most visible fundraising event for AIDS in the southeast, AIDS Walk Atlanta & 5K Run which benefits AID Atlanta and 8 participating agencies. These exceptional organizations provide treatment, medications, prevention education, meals, mental health services, child care, substance abuse counseling, pastoral care, and clinical research to help thousands of our families, neighbors and friends living with, affected by, and at-risk for HIV/AIDS in Atlanta.

With the 5th highest number of AIDS cases in the country we welcome participants as walkers, runners, and crew members to help address Metropolitan Atlanta’s AIDS crisis.

Fulton County has become one of the epicenters of the HIV epidemic in America. Nationally, Georgia ranks second and Atlanta ranks fifth in our rate of new HIV diagnoses [CDC 2013 Surveillance Report]. Here in Fulton County, the steady rise in new diagnoses among young black gay and bisexual men has continued unabated over the last decade

All individuals who wish to participate are required to register.
