Philadelphians Taking Action in the Fight Against HIV/AIDS

For 27 years, AIDS Walk Philly has raised funds for HIV/AIDS service organizations in the Greater Philadelphia Region.  Every 9 1/2 minutes, someone in the U.S. becomes infected with HIV and research shows, one out of five people are infected with HIV in the U.S. and aren’t aware of their disease.

However, the fight against HIV/AIDS has never been stronger, and on Sunday, October 20, 2013 Philadelphians can make a difference by participating in the 27th Annual AIDS Walk Philly & AIDS Run Philly.  The walk will bring together nearly 15,000 people to raise money for HIV prevention education, public awareness and HIV care services in the Greater Philadelphia Region.
You can take action in this important cause by getting sponsors, making a donation and joining with thousands of other walkers and volunteers on October 20th for the AIDS Walk Philly.  Register online and get additional information at or call 215-731-WALK.  You can follow the walk on Facebook or Twitter at @AIDSWalkPhilly.
