AIDS WALK
Kansas City 2020



WE ARE GOING VIRTUAL THIS YEAR! In Response to COVID-19, this year's WALK is going Virtual. Please continue to register and to raise funds for our local AIDS service organizations. We need you more than ever! Please read below for more information on the Virtual activities between now and Walk Day, April 25th.

 
From the AIDS Service Foundation Board of Directors:
Dear AIDS WALK Family,

 The Board of the AIDS Service Foundation of Greater Kansas City and the AIDS WALK Steering Committee hope that you and your family are staying healthy and safe during these uncertain times.  We want to update you on details for AIDS WALK 2020 as we are only 10 days out from event day!  In spite of the challenges facing the world today we will hold the 32nd annual AIDS WALK as planned, it will just look a little different.
 
Fundraising Incentives!
Beginning April 15th, we will mail t-shirts to every Walker that has raised at least $100. We will continue to do this leading up to the Walk so that you can wear your AIDS WALK Commemorative Shirt on Virtual Walk Day, April 25th. But please don't stop there with your fundraising! You can still qualify for other fundraising incentives that will be distributed at a gathering once the stay at home order has been lifted.
 
How to Participate Virtually on WALK Day, Saturday, April 25th!
On Saturday, April 25th between 9:30 am and 10:00 am, visit the AIDS Service Foundation of Greater Kansas City's Facebook page for a series of messages from AIDS WALK leadership and supporters. Then from 10:00 am until 10:30 am, you can watch AIDS WALK Team Captains, AIDS WALK Leadership and many other AIDS WALK Supporters participate virtually from their own homes on the same Facebook page! You can find the Foundation's page here. After 10:30 am, we encourage everyone to get out in their neighborhoods, back yards or living rooms to WALK!

Virtual Q&A Session-This Saturday, April 18th
This Saturday, April 18th, at 10 am we will hold a Virtual Q&A Session on our Facebook page here. During the Q&A session, we will share WALK Day plans, discuss Virtual fundraising ideas and answer any questions you have regarding AIDS WALK. You can ask your questions in the comments section. Be sure to tune in at 10 am this Saturday!
 
Please know that in these challenging times how much we appreciate your continued dedication and support of AIDS WALK Kansas City.  After 32 years it still matters that we all stay together, united in the commitment to fight HIV/AIDS and the stigma that follows it.  Therefore, your fundraising efforts mean even more this year under the circumstances our world faces today.  You are all heroes, not only in our eyes but in those men, women and youth that benefit from your generosity and hard work on behalf of AIDS WALK.   
 
Thank you for your compassion and we will look forward to seeing the AIDS WALK family as soon as possible.

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.


I need to download forms, receipts and team information. Where are these?


The download page is here. Download away!


How do I volunteer?


Click here to email us and we'll contact you.There will be volunteer opportunities once the COVID-19 crisis is over and fundraising events resume.


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.
