The LGBTQ Center of Long Beach proudly presents AIDS Walk Long Beach. The 2017 walk will be held on Sunday, November 5, 2017, and will kick off at 8am at Bixby Park before a beautiful finish at The Long Beach Museum of Art. All proceeds from AIDS Walk Long Beach benefit Long Beach organizations serving members within our local community.
Since its founding, AIDS Walk Long Beach has raised millions of dollars to support those most vulnerable and most in need served by Long Beach-based organizations. Funds raised support critical prevention services including free condoms, HIV and STI testing, food pantry support, case management, PrEp and PEP counseling, medication support, and social and support groups in multiple languages.
REGISTRATION IS ONLY $25!
Youth 12 years old and younger only $10!
AIDS Walk Long Beach brings awareness and support to local organizations giving services to people and communities impacted by HIV.
SUPPORTING MANY VOICES
AIDS Walk Long Beach exists because there are many organizations in our community who benefit from community support to serve those impacted by HIV. That is why the walk highlights a unified voice among local organizations, supporting local organizations, with the goal to bring an end to HIV.
The 2017 AIDS Walk Long Beach will start at the historic Bixby Park Band Shell and will head towards Junipero Beach in picturesque Long Beach, California. Enjoy the scenic view of the city’s namesake beach while you walk a total of 3.12 miles (5k) with your community. The walk will turn around at about 1.5 miles at the home of Long Beach’s most iconic sports venues — the Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool. From there, the walk will double back towards Junipero Beach and ending at the Long Beach Museum of Art for a cliffside finish line with amazing panoramic views of our marvelous beach.
Thank you to our amazing sponsors for their endless support and encouragement. It’s with community support theirs that we are able to achieve our goals of ending this epidemic in our city.
Thank you for choosing to support Long Beach AIDS Walk and the many organizations that have joined to support local efforts to make programs and services accessible to those living with HIV in our community. Your efforts to raise money for those organizations and the Center will help continue the amazing work we are dedicated to provide.
Fundraising can be easy
Creating a team of people to help raise money makes asking for donations much easier. A team of local daily walkers or a newly established walking group of co-workers can encourage support from many with simple posts, calls to action and email. Here’s how you can start your own team and start towards your set goal to help stop HIV in Long Beach.
