AIDS Walk New York A Tradition of Caring AIDS Walk New York is a 10 kilometer fundraising walkathon now in its 18th Year. Did You Know? AIDS Walk New York is the world's largest AIDS fundraising event. In 2002, nearly 42,000 people, a group as diverse as the city itself, participated in the AIDS Walk, collecting more than $4.7 million. AIDS Walk New York stands out as a model of community action and cost-efficient fundraising. The priority has always been to have the money raised go directly to vital services to help people living with HIV or AIDS. AIDS Walk New York benefits GMHC (Gay Men's Health Crisis), the nation's oldest and most comprehensive AIDS Service organization. The organization's staff of 169 and 6,600 dedicated volunteers provide services to more than 11,000 men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS and their families. A portion of the net proceeds from the AIDS Walk also goes to dozens of other AIDS organizations within the tri-state area to support programs and services provided by GMHC and other AIDS service organizations across the tri-state region for men, women, and children affected by HIV and AIDS. Join us on Sunday May 18, 2003 for our community's biggest response to the emergency of HIV/AIDS.
