HIV remains a serious health epidemic in Arizona that affects everyone. Take steps today to help Aunt Rita's Foundation and our Partner Agencies END HIV in Arizona by registering to participate in this year's AIDS Walk Arizona & 5K Run on Sunday, October 23rd in Downtown Phoenix.

Aunt Rita's Foundation AIDS Walk Arizona & 5K Run is Arizona's largest volunteer health charity walk that brings together over 6,000 participants raising money for HIV prevention education and essential services to those affected by HIV and AIDS. Aunt Rita's Foundation equitably distributes funds raised at AIDS Walk to our 16 Partner Agencies who provide prevention education and essential services needed to those affected by HIV and AIDS. 

There are several fun ways that you can participate in this year's AIDS Walk Arizona & 5K Run. Whether you are looking for a challenging run or just a casual stroll, everyone can participate in this year's AIDS Walk Arizona and 5K Run. Anyone can register to participate even the family dog can help raise awareness and funds.

Gather your friends, family, pets, co-workers and community to form a team to participate in the Walk to End HIV. This year with your help we will raise over $400,000 for Aunt Rita’s Foundation, but we need YOU to help us reach that goal.
