General

  • Mission:
  • The mission of AID Atlanta is to reduce new HIV infections and improve the quality of life of its members and the community by breaking barriers and building community.

  • Overview:
  • AIDS Walk Atlanta & 5K Run is the largest AIDS fundraising event in the Southeast. The event increases community awareness about the HIV epidemic.

    Now in its 23rd year, AIDS Walk Atlanta & 5K Run (AWA5K) is an annual fundraising event for AID Atlanta and 7 other local AIDS service organizations. Last year, an estimated 10,000 people participated in AWA5K and raised over $940,000 for these organizations. An estimated 10,000 participants are expected to gather together for this year's event on Sunday, October 20, 2013. The Walk and Run meeting area for the event will be in the Meadow of Piedmont Park in Atlanta Georgia. The five (5) kilometer route follows a path through Midtown Atlanta, Ansley Forest, and back into the park. The event officially begins at 11:00 am with the opening of runner and walker check-in. The run portion begins at 1:00 PM, the opening ceremony begins at 1:30 PM, and the walk starts at 2:00 PM. The event concludes on or about 4PM.

    Over 25,000 people with HIV/AIDS will receive services ranging from medical care, medications, mental health services, substance abuse counseling, pastoral care, housing and meals because of the walk.

    Over 85,000 people will be reached with HIV prevention including over 30,000 youth.

    The 5K Run portion of our event is now a Peachtree Road Race pre-qualifier. We will use this enhancement to market to our 5K Race contacts with the goal of increasing participation for this component of our event.

AID Atlanta quickly began expanding to offer a broad range of services and has since grown to be the Southeast’s largest, most comprehensive AIDS Service Organization. The mission of AID Atlanta is to reduce new HIV infections and improve the quality of life of its members and the community by breaking barriers and building community. To this end, AID Atlanta has proven itself the leader in the fight against the AIDS epidemic in Atlanta.
