AIDS Walk South Dallas

June 25 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Mission:
The mission of AIDS Walk South Dallas, Inc. is to empower all persons living with and affected by HIV/AIDS through prevention, advocacy, education, peer support, linkage to care and emergency financial assistance.

History:
​AIDS Walk South Dallas, Inc. was founded in 2009 to address the needs of marginalized and low-income communities and individuals impacted by HIV, whether living with or affected. We begin as a local 5k walk in a marginalized low income area in Dallas and one that has a high concentration of HIV cases. Our goal was to inspire, educate and galvanize the community and other surrounding areas of the city to continue to curb the spread of HIV/AIDS and assist those impacted. Our Founder and current CEO knew that the community needed more than just a walk once a year and so programs and services were created taking a true holistic approach allowing the organization to now reach thousands every year and truly impact and change lives in a positive way. 

Purpose:
​​Our purpose is to address the specific issues and needs of people living with HIV/AIDS with a focus on linkage to care and retention, medication access and adherence, viral suppression and address the social determinants of health.
