Event Details

  • Hope is Theme of Desert AIDS Walk 2020 
  • The reason for "The Walk" has never really been about balloon arches or walker t-shirts. It has always been about the collective power of community and our shared vision of a future where everyone has the patient-centered, comprehensive care they need to live their best lives. Thirty-four years of walking has ensured those living with HIV and AIDS continue to thrive.
  •  We are applying the critical lessons from our past to current challenges, creating a roadmap to quickly open a COVID-19 Triage clinic that has provided testing and respiratory treatment to more than 3,000 residents since the pandemic began.
  • Multiple Ways to Walk Your Walk
  • PLEASE NOTE: You must register as an individual walker before creating or joining an existing team.  Team Captains: We recommend creating and naming your team during this step.
