Launched in 1991 and now established as the city’s most significant HIV/AIDS fundraiser, the Run & Walk for AIDS celebrates the lives of those affected by HIV/AIDS while raising much-needed funds for the San Antonio AIDS Foundation (SAAF).
This year, organizers have set a goal to raise $100,000 to help SAAF continue providing its many services to the community, including free STD testing, prevention education and specialty care.
The 2016 Run & Walk for AIDS will take place Sunday April 3 from 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. The route begins and ends at the Blue Star Arts Complex and runs along the Mission Reach of the San Antonio River. There will be booths, music and complimentary refreshments for attendees to enjoy before and after.
Early registration for the event is now open. The fees are $30 for 5K runners ($35 after March 21) and $25 for 2-mile walkers ($30 after March 21). All registrations include an event T-shirt — even the “Snooze Crew” option, perfect for supporters who’d prefer to sleep in.
