AIDS Walk Austin, October 29
In its 30th year, AIDS Walk Austin returns to Republic Square on October 29, 2017, from 11:30am - 3:30 pm. Benefiting AIDS Services of Austin and 9 sharing agencies, this event brings together people (and pets) from all walks of life!
AIDS Walk Austin attracts 900+ people annually for an afternoon of celebration and remembrance of those affected by HIV. Begin the day with a festival in the park featuring live music, food trucks, vendors, and activities, and then walk the 2.5 mile route that uses the Capitol as a round-about.
The importance of this event is immeasurable. Every step that is taken decreases stigma and creates a step up for a person in need. Do something good for your sole and walk to build healthier futures for Central Texans.
