The Red Ribbon Walk & Run is Nine Circles’ largest annual fundraiser and awareness raising event. After almost two decades under the title of “AIDS Walk,” it was time to re-imagine and reinvent the event. HIV has come a long way in the past 17 years, and so have we! Join us on September 23, 2018 as we celebrate our transformation, raise funds, and spread awareness to decrease HIV stigma in our communities.

WHAT DOES THE RED RIBBON WALK & RUN SUPPORT?
