AIDS Walk will be held on Saturday, September 7, 2019 at The Fields Park.
For over 30 years the city’s finest have gathered to celebrate life, reduce HIV stigma, and remember those we’ve lost to HIV at the Portland AIDS Walk. The 2.5 mile walk through downtown Portland draws over 4,000 participants each year, including walkers and donors. Through our community’s support, AIDS Walk Portland raises over $350,000 to support the HIV/AIDS work of CAP and our community partners, and remains the largest and most visible AIDS fundraising event in the Pacific Northwest.
An estimated 1.1 million Americans currently live with HIV, with one in seven not knowing they carry the virus. In Oregon an estimated 7,000 individuals are HIV-positive, with nearly 70% of them living in the Portland metropolitan area. AIDS Walk Portland is a time for individuals from all walks of life to come together to support our HIV positive colleagues, family members, friends, and neighbors. It is a time to support the agencies that support those with HIV as they recover and regain an enthusiastic focus on life.
