Aid for AIDS of Nevada has led the AIDS Walk for over twenty years. Individual Walkers and Walk Team numbers have grown significantly, sponsorships by local businesses and organizations continue to increase, and public awareness rises with every walk.
Last year, more than 9,000 people walked raising over $450,000. Over 250 corporate and community teams raised 70% of the total funds collected. Teams represent some of the leading corporations and organizations in Southern Nevada including Walgreens, Nordstroms, Citi Group, M.A.C Cosmetics, UNLV, Wells Fargo, Penn & Teller and many more.
Today there is newfound hope in the fight against AIDS – but still no cure. Some people with HIV/AIDS are living longer thanks to new therapies. Tragically, the new treatments do not work for everyone, and HIV continues to spread at an alarming rate.
We will walk until that point in time, when AFAN is no longer effective, our services no longer needed and our purpose no longer essential to the solution.
