What is an AIDS Walk & Run Team?

Fun, fellowship and fundraising! Forming a team is a powerful morale-builder for schools, companies, organizations, family or friends.

You can register a new team, or join an existing one. Teams can range in size from two to more than 1,000 walkers. Last year, teams brought in in 70% of the event’s total funds raised!

Top Team Tents, Meeting Stations & Yellow Shoes Too!

Teams registering 10 or more participants OR with a team total of $1,000 or more by 8:00 AM on Monday, September 24 will receive the highly-coveted yellow shoe placard with your team’s name on it. Those teams also get a “Team Meeting Station” on AIDS Walk Saturday. Consider making your recruitment goal 10 or more!

Team members can be registered for the walk or the run.

Teams that qualify and raise the most money in their division will receive a 10’x10′ team tent for gathering purposes on AIDS Walk Saturday the following year.

See the current team standings! Those who have 10+ team members or raise over $1,000 qualify for a yellow shoe & team meeting station!

Can we bring our own signs or banners?

Our team has T-shirts. Can you give them to our team members when they register?

  • We are unable to distribute individual team T-shirts, but team meeting stations are a great location to hand out team T-shirts!

AIDS Walk volunteers will strike Team Meeting Stations immediately after the Walk steps off at 7:35 am. Please make sure to remove all personal belongings from your table or they will be discarded.
