The 22nd annual AIDS Walk Atlanta and 5K run is the largest AIDS-related fundraising event in the Southeast, last year raising more than $1 million from over 12,000 participants and surpassing 2010's fundraising by $82,000.
This year's event takes place Oct. 21 at Piedmont Park, but registration is now open for walkers and runners. To register, visit www.aidswalkatlanta.com or call 404-876-WALK (9255). The fee for walkers is $10; the fee for runners is $30 through Oct. 20 and $40 on race day.
“AID Atlanta commemorates its 30th anniversary this year,” said Tracy Elliott, the openly gay executive director of AID Atlanta in a prepared statement.
“With this milestone comes the hope that we can continue to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS in Atlanta and the responsibility to do as much as possible to prevent this epidemic from growing. Every participant in AIDS Walk helps us in our mission to save and transform lives," he said.
