AIDS Walk Miami 2015

April 26, 2015

One of Miami’s most important and beloved humanitarian events is coming back for another installment this April. The 27th Annual AIDS Walk will feature a walk-a-thon fundraiser near the Miami Beach Convention Center, and funds will help support those affected by HIV/AIDS living in the community: more than 15,000 individuals in Miami-Dade and Broward.

As the area’s largest HIV/AIDS awareness event and fundraiser, the walk is fundamental to the morale and support of our community and the world’s ongoing fight against this horrible disease. The most direct influences of the Miami AIDS Walk are the extensive donations and contributions granted to Care Resource, one of the most storied and sizable HIV/AIDS organizations in the greater Miami area and all of South Florida. The other major beneficiary of the walk will be the Food for Life Network Food Bank, which provides groceries, meals and health education to those affected by the disease.

The extraordinary weight of the cause makes participating in a simple 5K walk-a-thon and a small donation seem like easy endeavors. However, the AIDS Walk Miami still has a long way to go before reaching their fundraising goal of $250,000. With both modern medicine’s great strides, as well as Miami and Miami Beach’s reputation for social acceptance and progressive thinking, now is the perfect time to get involved.

For those looking to participate in, or attend and support the AIDS Walk Miami, the event will begin at the Miami Beach Convention Center. An opening ceremony will kick-off the walk, and the event will conclude with a celebration at the tropical Miami Beach Botanical Gardens. With two renowned venues and five kilometers of beautiful Miami Beach roads in between, participants can spend a lovely day out in the sun while supporting an incredibly important cause.
