Aids Walk/Run San Diego 2021
The Yellow Sneakers Are Back!
This year, participants will be able to once again walk or run the traditional AIDS Walk San Diego route or their own route between September 23-26. Check out the website, www.aidswalksd.org, for the traditional route. The San Diego LGBT Center is planning a new in-person, masked, outdoor, celebration/festival for all participants on Saturday, September 25 at 10 am. There will be an opening ceremony, live musical performances, recognition of top teams and fundraisers, T-shirt distribution, booths spotlighting our event sponsors and funding recipients, a remembrance altar, and remarks from our most committed community leaders.
How do I register to be part of Team PFLAG San Diego County you ask? Please visit www.aidswalksd.org, click on Register, Join a Team, fill in PFLAG San Diego County, and you are ready to register! The registration fee is $45.00 for all participants. There was an increase due to the revenue lost in 2020. There is also a place to make a donation if you wish. Any participant who raises $100+, which includes the registration fee, will receive an AIDS Walk and Run t-shirt. As of press time, there are only three people registered, so hop aboard!
If we reach $1,000 or 10 registered participants by Monday, September 20, we will receive the prestigious yellow sneaker, proudly displaying PFLAG San Diego County. We can then make a group decision when to gather and walk as a team.
The Center sponsors the AIDS Walk because it is San Diego’s largest HIV/AIDS fundraiser and the biggest non-governmental financial provider for HIV/AIDS support in San Diego County. Dozens of agencies serving thousands of clients rely on funds raised at the annual Walk/Run to help provide essential prevention and care programs to thousands of men, women, and children living with HIV/AIDS. Our visible support for this event shows people living with HIV that they are not alone.
