AIDS Walk 2019
May 11, 10am-12pm
This year marks the 23rd annual Northeast Indiana AIDS Walk and is one of the largest fundraisers for the Northeast Indiana Positive Resource Connection. For 2019, we’re changing up the theme to “What’s Your Story?”
For the past two years, we’ve had much success with “Be A Hero!” incorporating an action hero logo and superhero cos-players at the event. This year, we’re shifting the focus to the real-life, everyday heroes of our community: people living with HIV/AIDS, and the loved ones, industry workers, medical professionals and volunteers fighting alongside them. The intention behind the new theme is to put real faces on HIV/AIDS, add value and encourage donors to give back to these very people in their own community.
Throughout the months and weeks leading up to the event, we’ll be sharing video stories on our website and social channels from both prominent figures and community members of Fort Wayne. The stories will revolve around each person’s journey, whether living with HIV, loving someone living with HIV, working or volunteering in the industry, or growing up during the height of the AIDS crisis. Everyone has a different story to tell and we are sharing as many as we can!
