Join Nine Circles Community Health Centre for the 2021 Virtual Red Ribbon Walk & Run! Manitoba’s largest fundraiser for people living with HIV will take place over the week of September 20-26th.
How to Participate
Download our digital toolkit and participate in our awareness activities from September 20 – 26!
What do clothes, going for a walk, sharing Instagram posts and baking have in common? They’re all part of our Awareness Activities! During the week of September 20 – 26, we will have 7 daily tasks that raise awareness about people living with HIV. Every challenge that you complete means you get another chance to win exciting prizes like a bedroom set, a Roku TV, a Bluetooth speaker, gift cards, and more!
Purchase your 50/50 tickets or if you prefer a tax receipt, make a donation to support people living with HIV in Manitoba.
Proceeds support programs & services at Nine Circles that help people living with HIV thrive! The 50/50 raffle begins on August 30 and ends at midnight on September 26.
What Does The Red Ribbon Walk & Run Support?
Sometimes, people need extra help to live well with HIV and reach or maintain an undetectable viral load. This is where Nine Circles’ programming comes in. Your support of the Red Ribbon Walk & Run helps people living with HIV thrive by supporting services beyond basic medical care. Donations support programs that promote wellness, such as our Food Bank, social connection, food security, economic participation, and health equity, as well as projects that fight stigma and discrimination in our community.
The funds raised by the Red Ribbon Walk & Run help people access supports to ensure HIV will not prevent them from living a full and meaningful life. Donations support programs and services that promote wellness, social connection, food security, economic participation, and health equity, as well as projects that fight stigma and discrimination in our community. But you can best learn how Nine Circles supports people living with HIV by reading how Lisa overcame HIV stigma with the help of Nine Circles to thrive after her HIV diagnosis.

“One of the most difficult parts about living with HIV, is the stigma attached to HIV. After I was diagnosed, I had no idea who to turn to for help, but events like the Red Ribbon Walk & Run help educate the community and remove harmful stigma that can isolate people living with HIV. The resources Nine Circles provides has changed my outlook on life and helped me connect with a powerful community that I didn’t know existed.”
– Lisa Patrick, client
