For the last 30 years, the Scotiabank AIDS Walk has tied communities across Canada together in the fight against HIV/AIDS, raising money for programs and services and building awareness about HIV. People living with HIV are diverse: they’re our friends, our families, our coworkers, our community. They’re from different walks of life and different parts of Manitoba. But what brings us together is larger and more important than what sets us apart. Regardless of HIV status, we are all one community. We are all in this together.
Here’s how you can be a part of making a difference:
We walk a 2km loop around the West End that starts and ends in Central Park. Join the crowd or recruit your friends, family and coworkers and create a team. Pick a team name for your group and pick a costume to match this year’s #TiedTogether theme! Need some inspiration? Watch the promo video on the AIDS Walk website by clicking the sign up link on the left. While you’re there, register your team and track your success online! On walk day, register early to enjoy music, entertainment, refreshments and multiple games and activities for the whole family. The walk will be followed by loads of great prizes and pets are welcome too! Check out our Walker Toolkit for everything you need to fundraise and walk the walk!
Donating online is very easy! Click the circle on the left to sponsor a walker, sponsor a team or make a general donation. This year, our fundraising goal is $30,000. Every bit helps! Donations can also be made in-person at Nine Circles or by mailing a cheque to Nine Circles, c/o AIDS Walk Winnipeg, 705 Broadway, Winnipeg MB, R3G 0X2
