AIDS Walk Ventura will take place in Plaza Park Ventura on Saturday, March 4, at 8:30 AM. The goal of AIDS Walk Ventura is to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS and to fund future efforts for education, outreach, and prevention within Ventura County. The event has a long history in Ventura County and has been hosted by a number of organizations throughout the years. Diversity Collective Ventura County (VCDC) is proud to have brought back this event to Ventura County, in partnership with Ventura County Department of Public Health, and with the help of numerous volunteers and sponsors for our third annual AIDS Walk. Collectively, DCVC aims to reduce and stop the spread of HIV and AIDS in Ventura County with an education and prevention program.
There will be a full morning of events. Walkers can fundraise online or register the day of the event. At 9:45 will be the official welcome by emcee Ruby Diamond. Walkers have a 5k walk starting at Fir Street then heading over to the Ventura Beach Boardwalk and back into the park to hear final announcements, the top three teams and individuals and live music!
If you would like to be a register online, sponsor, volunteer, or for general information, please visit aidswalkventura.diversitycollective.org. Booths will be free of charge, and a limited number of tables and tents are available, upon request. In kind donations and monetary sponsorships are tax-deductible.
