On behalf of the team at HIV Community Link, we would like to thank you for all that you did to make the 2018 Calgary AIDS Walk & Run a success. Your generosity and hard work helped us to raise $66,418.20. These funds will support HIV Community Link’s programs in Calgary and Southeastern Alberta. None of this would have been possible without all of you who donated your time, talents, and money to support our cause!
On September 23rd, 2018 our community of participants, amazing volunteers, performers, and government representatives gathered together at Eau Claire Plaza to raise funds for HIV programming and to help end transmission with every step. Approximately 80,500 people have been diagnosed with HIV in Canada and 1 in 5 don’t know they have it. We are grateful to Michael Connolly MLA for Calgary-Hawkwood for speaking at our event as well as MLA Stephanie McLean and MLA Deborah Drever for their continued support of the Walk and of our organization.
The fundraising page calgaryaidswalk.ca will be open for donations until December 2018. All the prize winners have been contacted individually.
Thank you all for being champions for our vision: Empowering choices. Engaging communities. Ending Transmission. We hope to see you again next year!
About the AIDS Walk & Run
The AIDS Walk & Run is a vibrant, fun event where people from across Calgary come together to show support and fundraise for those affected by HIV. On September 23, 2018 the event will begin in Eau Claire Plaza with live music, family-friendly entertainers, African dancers, Indigenous performers, and more. Once the Walk & Run kicks off, the path will take you along the beautiful Bow River and loop right back around to the Plaza, where you can enjoy a delicious complimentary lunch with your team, and try the new beer garden!
