Chicago-area residents will band together for equity and justice for individuals living with and vulnerable to HIV at the 16th annual AIDS Run & Walk Chicago on Sunday, Oct. 1. The event will start and finish at Soldier Field in Chicago, and courses for the 5k walk and the 5k/10k runs will stretch along Lake Michigan.
Funds raised through AIDS Run & Walk Chicago will benefit programs and services for the AIDS Foundation of Chicago and more than 30 other metropolitan organizations that provide life-saving services to people living with HIV and AIDS. Since it was established in 2001, AIDS Run & Walk Chicago has netted more than $5 million to battle the epidemic.
