Join the CDC/ATSDR Team as we walk (and/or run!) in the 29th annual AIDS Walk Atlanta & 5K Run, a fundraising and awareness campaign that raises funds to help prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS and to provide critical social services and healthcare for people living with HIV.
With advances in treatment and prevention we can stop transmission.
Testing, education, and prevention including PrEP therapy and condom use will greatly reduce new HIV infections.
AIDS Walk Atlanta & 5K Run is an opportunity for the community to come together to remember those we have lost to HIV/AIDS and celebrate the achievements we have made in the fight against this disease.
All of the money raised through this effort will stay local and will make a positive impact in our community as we try to move the needle closer to zero infections in the metro Atlanta area and across the southeast.
Thank you for supporting our team, and know that you are helping to make a difference in someone’s life!
Did you know:
The South made up 52% of new HIV diagnoses in 2017 in the United States. The strongest concentrations of HIV/AIDS cases in Georgia are found in Fulton, Dekalb, and Clayton Counties. Metro Atlanta has the fourth-highest HIV rate of major U.S. cities.
Talking openly about HIV can reduce the stigma that keeps too many from seeking the testing, prevention, treatment services, and support they need.
Encourage everyone to get tested and know their status!
