Sunday, June 3rd marked the 33nd AIDS Walk & Run Boston on the Boston Common. Thousands of people in Greater Boston and beyond signed up to raise money for the programs and services of AIDS Action, as well as start conversations with friends and family about HIV prevention, care, and advocacy. The grassroots efforts of these supporters are critical to AIDS Action’s goals each year, allowing us to continue providing our clients with critically needed services.
Last year’s AIDS Walk & Run Boston raised vital funds with the help from leading fundraising teams like The Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT, and Harvard and John’s Team, who displayed exemplary dedication in 2018 raising over $71,000, and $33,000 respectively. Other notable teams include Brown Middle School ($12,000), Divas & Devils ($12,000), AIDS Action ($13,000) and Grand Circle Travel ($10,000). The top five individual fundraisers in 2018 were Bruce Walker, Kelly Rush, Jonathan Urbach, Jim Haber and Warren Schur.
