Originally founded in 1985, APRI was the first AIDS service organization in Rhode Island. Our mission is to provide a compassionate, nonjudgmental, and collaborative response to the needs of people living with, affected by, and at risk for HIV/AIDS. We strive to accomplish our mission through leadership in prevention, education, supportive services, and advocacy. Today, APRI, as a division of Family Service of Rhode Island, continues its tradition of excellence while energetically developing new programs and approaches to meet today’s challenges in the continuing fight to end the epidemic and improve the quality of life for all people living with and at risk for HIV/AIDS.
AIDS Walk/Run for Life
About the Event
Our annual AIDS Run/Walk for Life is APRI’s signature fundraising event. It brings together people from communities across Rhode Island to raise and renew awareness of HIV and AIDS, honor those who have passed, and raises funds that ensure we can continue to fulfill our mission. The Walk has in years past been held at the Statehouse and other locations in and around Providence and featured a number of community speakers, politicians, and activists of all stripes.
