MORRIS COUNTY – The New Jersey AIDS Walk, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization which collaborates with several New Jersey cities that are home to leading HIV/AIDS service organizations.
This year’s event will be held on Sunday, May 5. PRIDE Run Registration begins at 7:30 a.m., PRIDE Run begins at 9:00 a.m. AIDS Walk Registration begins at 11:30 a.m., AIDS Walk begins at 1:00 p.m. in Central Park of Morris County.
On this day, thousands of people throughout New Jersey will walk in solidarity in an effort to support those living with HIV/AIDS in the Garden State.
It is a yearly example that Jersey Strong means compassion, community and commitment. Despite incredible progress, New Jersey continues to rank among the ten states with the highest rate of HIV infection in the country.
With over 40,000 people currently living with HIV in New Jersey, we are in great need of community support. Join us in fighting this pandemic by walking with us in the 2019 New Jersey AIDS Walk. Now more than ever, we need your help to save lives. We are in need of lifesaving funds for the HIV+ community, as well as helping to build the first and only LGBTQ+ center in Morris County.
All of the funds raised from the NJ PRIDE Run and NJ AIDS Walk will allow NJAS to continue to provide compassionate care and social services to each person who walks through our door. “Walking sends a clear message that we won’t allow the healthcare needs of people who are HIV+ and part of the LGBTQ+ community to be forgotten,” said Laurie Litt, Chief Executive Officer of NJAS which organizes and hosts the Morris County location.
We are pleased to announce Janssen Infectious Diseases as the 2019 Presenting Sponsor.
