Honolulu AIDS Walk 2016 Event Information
Welcome to the 25th annual Honolulu AIDS Walk! It is estimated that over 5,000 people will walk together on Sunday, April 17th at Kapiolani Park in beautiful Waikiki. The Honolulu AIDS Walk is an easy 5K walk around beautiful Kapiolani Park, the annual walk raises funds to support Life Foundation, Hawaii's oldest and largest AIDS organization. The Life Foundation provides free services to our local community through its HIV Prevention Services: Education, Counseling, Condom Distribution, HIV and Hepatitis C Rapid Testing. We also provide Care Services to our clients through: Housing Assistance, Nursing Care, Mental Health Support, Native Hawaiian Services, Emergency Food Pantry, Hot Meals Program, and Peer Support Groups.
Registration is easy and FREE! Walkers help us out by asking family, friends, and co-workers for donations in support of their fight against HIV. You can register to walk as an individual walker, start your own team, or join an existing team. You do not have to walk to help the Life Foundation fundraise but we kindly ask that you please register and create a home page to show your support. Simply click on one of the Registration buttons to the home page and follow the screen prompts. If you walked in previous year's we ask that you please register again, we switched over to a new program to oversee the Honolulu AIDS Walk website and your old user name and password did not carry over in the switch.
We hope you will join us for a day of community, fun, and a chance to make a difference in the lives of those living with HIV/AIDS in Hawaii. Since our first walk, the community has helped us raise over 2.5 million dollars from the Honolulu AIDS Walk. 100% of these valuable funds will stay in Hawaii and help provide critical life saving services to the local HIV community. Whether you walk to remember a friend or family memeber lost to HIV/AIDS, in support of a loved one living with HIV, or insupport of the fight against HIV on Sunday, April 17th we will walk in solidarity to raise awareness that HIV is still infecting people each and every day and renew our efforts and walk until we finally see a cure for this disease.
