On June 1, 1986, 4,000 people came together at an event called “From All Walks of Life,” a fundraising walk to support the services of AIDS Action Committee. Today, this event is known as the AIDS Walk & Run Boston. More than thirty years later, almost 350,000 people have participated in the AIDS Walk & Run Boston and raised over $40 million for the programs and services of AIDS Action.
Every year, thousands of people like you and me continue to walk together to make our community healthier. While the Walk has grown and changed to reflect the mood of the time, we continue to assemble on the first Sunday in June, united by these common causes: to remember those we have lost to HIV/AIDS, support those who are living with this disease, and finally end the epidemic.
Please join us this year and together, we can finish the fight against HIV!
