2020 Seattle AIDS Walk Goes…Virtual

I mean, what else COULD it do, in the Age of Covid?

For 2020 we’ve all had to make huge adjustments and that includes traditional forms of fundraising done by Lifelong Seattle. Normally the Seattle AIDS Walk happens in September but naturally precautions must be taken for our ongoing pandemic situation so for this year the AIDS Walk will move online (like everything else) and become the Lazy Person’s Dream of a walk!

It’s going to happen for a week (that’s a long ass walk!) from December 1 through December 8 to tie in with World AIDS Day.

What you need to know to participate and/or contribute!

Join us for the Virtual Seattle AIDS Walk, kicking off on World AIDS Day and continuing throughout the week of December 1-8.

How we’re doing things in 2020: We’re expanding our walk this year so anyone can participate regardless of where you are in a fun, safe, socially distant way. This year’s event will be virtual and take place over an entire week to give all participants enough time to walk their own routes! Please join us in walking and raising vital funds to help support our HIV services.

WHY WE WALK:

More than ever before, we know that racism is a public health crisis.

As 2020 has put a spotlight on many racial disparities, we are reminded that HIV impacts communities of color at much higher rates.

Every 4 days, a Black and Latinx person is diagnosed with HIV in Washington State.

We must work together to address these inequities and serve the most disenfranchised members of our community.

Let’s join together and keep fighting for everyone to have an opportunity to live a healthy life.
