Boston AIDS Walk & 5K Run

By Charlotte Robinson, June 01, 2014

The 29th annual AIDS Walk Boston & 5K Run takes place on Sunday June 1st. Every year since 1986 our LGBT community & allies have gathered on the first Sunday in June for AIDS Walk Boston & 5K Run, an annual grassroots community event benefiting AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts, New England’s largest & oldest AIDS service organization. For nearly three decades thousands of dedicated participants have raised millions of dollars for AIDS Action’s innovative programs & services that are essential to maintaining the health of individuals living with the disease & preventing the spread of the epidemic. Just as important the Walk also raises our awareness of the impact HIV/AIDS has on individuals, families & the community at-large, reminding us all that we must work together to stop the spread of HIV. The event which is the AIDS Action Committee's largest annual fundraiser is expected to draw 10,000 to 15,000 participants & raise approximately $1 million. Sunday Check-in begins at 7:30 a.m., DCR Hatch Memorial Shell, Boston. The Walk begins & ends at the DCR Hatch Memorial Shell on the Charles River Esplanade in Boston. Opening Ceremonies commence 9:50A, 5K Run starts 10A, AIDS Walk Boston begins 10:30A, Wellness Festival begins 11:00A, 5K Run Awards Ceremony & 1:30P Closing Ceremonies commence. Openly gay WCVB-TV newscaster Randy Price will emcee the fundraiser.
