AIDS Walk OKC

History and Purpose of the AIDS Walk of Oklahoma City, Inc:

Established in 1998 and incorporated in 2001, the AIDS Walk of Oklahoma City’s mission is to build awareness about HIV/AIDS and to raise funds to support the work of nonprofit organizations that provide HIV/AIDS direct care, support services, and education.

The mission is achieved by holding an annual Walk and 5k Run, in downtown Oklahoma City, as well as several smaller fundraisers held throughout the calendar year.

Funds raised by participants and by corporate donations are distributed to eligible nonprofit HIV/AIDS organizations. Since 1998, over $565,000 has been returned to the community to benefit people living with HIV disease.

The Walk’s visibility heightens awareness about HIV, which is a totally preventable disease. It gives the HIV community’s organizations an opportunity to help organize the Walk and use it as a tool to increase HIV testing and prevention education.
