Get some cool swag when you sign up to take steps with us to raise awareness around testing and treatment of HIV that can help to #EndTheEpidemic. Joining a virtual walk is easy because you can take steps from wherever you are at a time that is convenient for you on December 1.

Register online through eventbrite.com. If you register by November 22, that will give us time to ship you your free gifts (a T-shirt, water bottle, ribbon) in time to use for the walk on December 1. Remember to track your steps and share your story that day.

Don’t miss out! RSVP today.

Every year on December 1, World AIDS Day, we are reminded of another global epidemic that continues often because of inequalities.

Let’s address inequalities in Los Angeles holding back progress as we raise public awareness. Let’s join together virtually on World AIDS Day 2022 to wear red, share stories and hopes for the future, all while putting in steps towards an HIV-free tomorrow.
