Event description

Description

TO PARTICIPATE IN THE MEMORIAL OR LEGACY PROGRAM, PLEASE FILL OUT THIS FORM.

We want to make sure we have your information, and that your banner will be ready on Walk Day. There are two ways of sponsoring your banner:

  1. Join an AIDS Walk Team and raise funds from friends and family.

  2. Make a contribution to cover your participation.

Please click on the "Tickets" button (upper right hand corner of this page) to complete your registration.

For 31 years, AIDS WALK has honored the brave folks we have lost to the fight against AIDS. As we've done in years past, we will place your loved one's name on the commemorative event T-shirt and on a memorial banner for you to carry at the beginning of the walk.

LEGACY PROGRAM

The Legacy Program will honor those advocates who have passed away but who during their lifetime have given unselfishly of their advocacy, talents and treasure to the fight against AIDS. Similar to the Memorial Program, you can donate to have your loved ones’ names listed on a banner, not a white banner like the Memorial Program, but a crimson red banner that will be carried at AIDS WALK. This program is inspired by the Legacy that Steve Metzler who during his life did so much for so long for so many in the HIV/AIDS community. There have been others like Steve who also gave to the fight but who also did not succumb to the disease but died of other causes. Please sign up by Thursday, March 21st.

Register on the AIDS Walk fundraising site and commit to raising at least $75 for the Legacy Banner. If you do not already belong to a team, we encourage you to join the Memorial Team (below).
As an alternative, you may make a $75 donation to AIDS WALK Kansas City.

MEMORIAL TEAM

Not only do we carry our banners together, we raise money together to fight AIDS and to prevent its spread by educating our youth and folks at risk. Please sign up by Thursday, March 21st.

Register on the AIDS Walk fundraising site and commit to raising at least $75 for the Memorial Banner. If you do not already belong to a team, we encourage you to join the Memorial Team (below).
As an alternative, you may make a $75 donation to AIDS WALK Kansas City.

Sponsorship of a banner allows you one free t-shirt. Additional shirts may also be purchased.

Why do we ask you to create a fundraising page?

Your friends and family want to help. You can also donate to your own page, which shows them you're serious about fighting AIDS. Every dollar you raise helps people in Kansas City--and it's easy. Sign up and send out an email to your list. That's all there is.

If you do not already belong to a team, please join the Memorial Team:

1. Go to the Memorial Team page on the AIDS WALK website.

2. Click on the YELLOW BUTTON that says "Join Our Team"

3. Fill out the short form

4. You'll be taken through the steps (add a photo, write a message, etc.). You can create your own URL (like www.AIDSWalkKansasCity.org/yourname) so people can find you easily and donate.

5. You'll then be a Memorial Team member! Expect updates about events, the schedule on Walk Day and other important news. Please remember--you must sign up by Thursday, March 21st.

WHAT IF I HAVEN'T LOST SOMEONE BUT WANT TO SUPPORT THE MEMORIAL BY ADOPTING A BANNER?

Some of our loved ones from the early days of AIDS have no one to remember them. Many folks sponsor a banner to keep their loved one’s memory alive. If you would like to adopt a banner, please join the Memorial Team and we'll pair you with the name of someone who's died from AIDS so you can keep their memory alive.

IS THERE ANY OTHER WAY TO SIGN UP?

We encourage you to sign up by using the form on this website.

Click on the green "Tickets" button in the upper right hand corner of this web page. If you would like a copy of the Memorial/Legacy Program form emailed to you, please email walk@aidswalkkansascity.org or call (816) 931-0959.

Please let us know if you have any questions. We’ll do our best to quickly find an answer. Thank you for your continuing support of AIDS WALK Kansas City and our Memorial Team.
