Why Will You Walk?
Some Indiana AIDS Walk participants walk to remember a loved one lost. Some walk to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS. Others walk to help out a stranger in need. On Sunday, September 19, you can walk with us to raise money for the Gregory R. Powers Direct Emergency Financial Assistance (DEFA) Fund. DEFA pays for emergency expenses for Hoosiers living with HIV/AIDS who are at or below the poverty level. Last year, DEFA funds were used to cover utility payments, keep a family from becoming homeless, doctors’ visits, prescription drug refills, bus passes even to replace a battery-powered wheelchair.

Who Walks?
Families, friends, businesses, civic leaders, fraternities, sororities, churches, educators, volunteers, corporations, children, pets, clubs, associations anyone who wants to help those living with HIV/AIDS in emergency situations.

More than 800 people participated in 2019 and our goal is 900 walkers in 2021!

Activities include:

  • Individual Fundraising Award
  • Phil Denton Memorial Team Fundraising Award
  • We updated the list of fundraising tips with social distancing in mind. Included in this year's tips are recommendations for how to use social media to fundraise. If you decide you still need a good long walk, here is a link to some of the best trails in Indiana. Perfect for social distancing.
