AIDS Walk History
The AIDS Walk for Life was started by AIDS Project Rhode Island in the mid-1980s—part of a wave of grassroots fundraisers held across the country that was that raised money to help provide care and support to individuals suffering during the early days of the AIDS epidemic, when they were often without insurance, access to services, and/or dying alone because their families and communities had rejected them.
In the more than 30 years since the first AIDS Walk for Life, we have made great strides in the fight against HIV, and now, thanks to advances in medication, people with HIV are living longer, healthier lives.
That does not mean, however that HIV and AIDS have gone away. The virus may not make headlines much these days, but more than 1 million people in the U.S. are living with HIV. Every year, more than 30,000 people in the U.S. get HIV, and continued stigma against people living with the virus, gaps in education, and lack of connection to care and support services present enormous challenges.
Registration & Event Details
The annual AIDS Run/Walk for Life has taken place for more than 30 years. As the state’s longest running HIV/AIDS service organization, AIDS Project Rhode Island offers services to more than 1,000 people each year, and in 2018 provided nearly 1,200 HIV, syphilis, and hepatitis C tests to individuals throughout the state. Funds from the Run/Walk for Life ensure we can continue to provide these critically needed services.
We are currently planning details for the 2020 Run/Walk for Life.
