The Grand Rapids Walk to Stop HIV (formerly AIDS Walk + Run) is an annual fundraising event dedicated to raising money to support services related to education and elimination of HIV/AIDS in the Greater Grand Rapids area.
The Red Project is a local, independent organization whose mission is to prevent HIV, reduce risk, and improve health. Each year, Red Project reaches thousands in Grand Rapids with the tools and information to prevent HIV, fight stigma, and support those living with HIV. Funds and awareness raised through the Walk to Stop HIV are key to achieving our mission in Grand Rapids.
This year, folks can walk the 5K, or fun run it. If you can't make it, and want to still support Red Project, sign up as a virtual walker!
