walk, out loud! at Ruth Hardy Park on October 29, 2022
We invite you to gather with friends and family to walk with us on Saturday, October 29, 2022. Whether you start a team or walk as an individual, every step and dollar raised makes an impact in the lives of people living with HIV. Every year, Desert AIDS Walk participants raise significant funds and awareness for the End the HIV Epidemic movement, while celebrating survivors, and honoring lives lost to AIDS.
“Desert AIDS Walk is a time when we reflect on where we have been and what our vision moving forward is. One thing that has not changed is the collective power of this community and DAP’s promise to advocate and belief that everyone deserves comprehensive healthcare. This year’s walk is not only to raise awareness for HIV but also in regards to health equity and health justice for all.” – Director of Development, James Lindquist.
