Kansas City 2020
WE ARE GOING VIRTUAL THIS YEAR! In Response to COVID-19, this year's WALK is going Virtual. We will have more information on the Virtual WALK day activities as we get closer to AIDS WALK 2020 on April 25th. However, please continue to register and to raise funds for our local AIDS service organizations. We need you more than ever! Please read below for the AIDS Service Foundation's official response to COVID-19.
From the AIDS Service Foundation Board of Directors:
Dear AIDS WALK Family,
After much consideration, the board of the AIDS Service Foundation of Greater Kansas City, (ASF), has made the decision to transform this year's AIDS WALK Kansas City, scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 25 at Theis Park, into a Virtual AIDS WALK. This effort will be heavily driven by electronic media such as videos, Facebook Live, email communications and more. This decision has been made in light of the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention as well as KCMO Mayor Lucas's State of Emergency proclamation that no events or gatherings with 50 or more attendees will be allowed in Kansas City for the next eight weeks. And Monday, the White House released their Coronavirus Guidelines for all Americans asking to avoid social gatherings with 10 people or more.
We are deeply appreciative of the thousands of individuals, corporate partners, and organizations that have already supported the 32nd annual AIDS WALK Kansas City to this point. We look forward to continuing to work with our friends, families and neighbors through this Virtual AIDS WALK event and work together to fight against HIV/AIDS in Kansas City.
AIDS WALK leadership will continue to work closely with Team Captains, Volunteers and corporate sponsors to ensure new ways to raise money and awareness in the local fight against AIDS. Although registered Walkers will not be able to participate in person on April 25th, "attendees" will participate through innovative AIDS WALK social media platforms and other communications. During the next several weeks, Walk Leadership will encourage fun and competitive new opportunities for fundraising as we work towards widening the giving circle to garner additional support.

The AIDS Service Foundation wants to ensure that everyone has accurate information to ensure the safety and health of everyone.

Please know that in these uncertain times we are grateful for your continued support of AIDS WALK Kansas City and your commitment to bringing our city closer to an AIDS-Free generation.

What’s a team?
Everybody loves to participate in AIDS WALK with friends, coworkers and family. It's easy to create your own team. . More information about how to create a winning team is in our download section here. You still get your individual prizes even if you’re a part of a team.
What are the white banners?
That’s part of the Memorial Team. They’re a group of families and friends who have lost someone to AIDS. Many of them have been walking with us since the first year of the walk, 31 years ago. The names they honor also appear on the memorial T-shirt you get when you raise $100. To learn more about the Memorial Team, click here.

Does AIDS WALK only raise money on April 25th?
Not any more. Because of federal and state budget cuts, more help is needed in Kansas City than ever. Fundraising for AIDS Walk is a year-round adventure. There’s always something going on!
Here’s a list of the yearly events of the AIDS WALK Fundraising Family:
Where does the money go?
All the money you raise stays in Kansas City, helping four major organizations. You can read more about these wonderful groups on the About AIDS Service Foundation Page.
