About This Activity

Registration, the race start and finish, along with the AIDS Walk Vendor Village  will be held at Idlewild Park.  The run and both walks will travel from Idlewild Park to downtown Reno utilizing the scenic path that navigates along the river to downtown and back to the park..

This year, the walk will include a “Paws for the Cause Dog Walk.” In an effort to create additional funding and awareness in the fight against HIV/AIDS, dog owners are invited to enter their dog in the Dog Walk and have their friends and family sponsor their dogs. The top three fundraisers will receive prizes.

All dogs must be be friendly, leashed and up to date on vaccinations. Owners are responsible for cleaning up after their dogs.

The AIDS Walk/Run Vendor Village will feature a variety of vendors including health & wellness booths, free HIV testing, food vendors, running & sports vendors, pet supplies and more!

All proceeds from the event benefit local HIV service organizations that are committed to providing care to those affected by HIV/AIDS. In addition, these organizations educate the community about HIV/AIDS, provide testing opportunities, and are dedicated to reducing the number of infections in northern Nevada.

The lead organization behind this event is Northern Nevada HOPES, the regional leader in HIV prevention, treatment and care. Other organizations who will benefit from funds raised include ACCEPT, Frontline, NNOT and Planned Parenthood.

Sponsorship is available at the Presenting Sponsorship level ($10,000), Gold level ($7,000), Silver level ($3,000), Bronze level ($1,500) and at the Supporter level ($250). In-kind sponsorships are also available.  Contact suzy@nnhopes.org to find out more about how sponsoring the AIDS Walk/Run can benefit your organization.
