AIDS Walk 2016 in the Planning Stages

By Angela Sanders | Grants Coordinator

Thank you, everyone, for an amazing AIDS Walk 2015!

We're in the planning stages for this year's AIDS Walk, which will be held in Fields Park in September 2016. Many people are surprised to learn that planning a one-day event takes all year. We'll give you a peek into our planning process:

Registration set up: needs updated each year, and we work on improving its functionality to make it easier for you to register and to get and track donations. Plus, we add fabulous photos of last year's teams.

The venue: Then, there's securing the myriad permits needed to hold an event attracting more than 20,000 people. Not only do we need to get a permit for Fields Park, we need to get clearance for the walk's entire route and police to block traffic and Trimet buses and trains as necessary. Plus, there are sound systems, portapotties, and tents to rent.

Sponsors: All year round we solicit sponsors to host AIDS Walk Portland. We've been lucky to have some amazing sponsors that offer ongoing support, including Chevron, Nike, OHSU, The Standard, and more.

Lead-up events: We hold a handful of pre-walk events to get people charged up for AIDS Walk.

That's just a tiny bit of what happens to put on AIDS Walk Portland. We hope to see you this fall at the event!
