PRC In the Community: San Francisco AIDS Walk

This July, Positive Resource Center (PRC) participated in the 29th annual AIDS Walk San Francisco, joining 20,000 community members in support of HIV programs and services in the Bay Area. This event raised over $1.9 million, benefiting over 40 different HIV/AIDS service and advocacy organizations in the Bay Area, including Positive Resource Center.

Team PRC surpassed its fundraising goal, raising a total of over $4,900. At the Walk, PRC staff members were joined by family and friends who came out to support the team on their trek.aidswalk

The 10K (or about 6 miles) San Francisco AIDS Walk looped through Golden Gate Park on an uncharacteristically hot day for San Francisco. The temperature reached the upper 80s and the skies were clear and sunny. Thankfully, AIDS Walk volunteers were sure to keep walkers fueled and hydrated at the four checkpoints of the walk, and the team cheered each other on all the way to the finish line.

Beyond fundraising, this annual event is an opportunity for the San Francisco community to come together in celebration of how far we’ve come and to reflect on the work that still needs to be done to support people living with or at risk of HIV/AIDS. The 20,000 walkers braving the heat and the distance as well as all of the generous contributors to AIDS Walk demonstrate just how much the San Francisco community cares about continuing to support HIV programs and services.

It’s not too late to show your support! You can still be a part of AIDS Walk and support PRC by donating online up until August 14.
