About This Activity

Walk To Stop HIV on September 12th!

Whether you're a polecat, twinkie, cougar, bear, birdie, beaver, family of four or even a chubby chaser, get on board!

Join us for a fun 5K walk or run to support the life-saving work of The Grand Rapids Red Project and AIDS Inc: Advocacy, Information, and Diverse Services. Come out and enjoy a beautiful stroll along the riverside (rain or shine!), all while supporting a good cause!

The Grand Rapids Red Project is dedicated to improving health, reducing risk, and preventing HIV in the city of Grand Rapids.  We are out in the community every day providing access to the knowledge, tools, information and support that people need to stay healthy.

At the Walk To Stop HIV, we are coming together to end the epidemic. We have the tools to stop HIV transmission, and we are committed to raising awareness and provided the tools to the community to do just that. A donation of as little as $25 can make a huge impact in the community, it can even save a life.

$25 can help Red Project distribute 500 condoms when and where they're needed. A $25 donation can also be used to support HIV testing, thereby allowing someone to learn their status and be connected to treatment. Or, a $25 donation can be used to save a life through the Red Project's overdose prevention program, where we train someone how to respond to a life-threatening overdose situation. Red Project will put your donations to work.

Register today, join a team, and sign up to be a fundraiser! Recruit friends, family and neighbors to help stopHIV. Who will be on your walk/run team this year? Successful teams have been formed by co-workers, families, friends, and like-minded individuals. Sign up to be a fundraiser today! It feels great to make a difference in your community, and the Walk To Stop HIV is a fun way to be involved!

Registration this year is $25 to walk or to run.  For $25 you get a one of a kind, limited edition Walk To Stop HIV t-shirt, full participation in the activities, and the assurance that your registration fee will go to support the work of Red Project in the community.  Register yourself for the walk/run, sign up to be a fundraiser, and help us raise funds to support our community health in Grand Rapids!

If the $25 registration fee is a barrier to your participation in the event, please contact Brian at brian@redproject.org or call 616-456-9063.

We can end this epidemic together.
