The 5th Annual New Jersey AIDS Walk - Sunday, May 1, 2016

Aids Walk 2010

LOCATION: Ridgewood Duck Pond – Saddle River County Park,
1133 E. Ridgewood Ave., Ridgewood, NJ, 07450

One Day – One Cause – Five Locations

RIDGEWOOD - Newark - Morristown - Asbury Park - Atlantic City


Several of New Jersey’s leading AIDS Service Organizations have unified their efforts to produce a single state-wide awareness and fundraising event on the first Sunday in May. On this one day, in five separate locations, thousands of people will walk in solidarity throughout the state of New Jersey to support people living with HIV/AIDS. This coordinated effort is designed to raise awareness that AIDS is still a major healthcare issue in our state, as well as raise funds to help support the efforts of the participating HIV/AIDS Service Organizations

With more than 38,000 people currently living with HIV/AIDS in New Jersey, we are in the top 10 for the highest rate of reported cases of HIV infection in the United States. Although people living with HIV/AIDS often face acts of prejudice and discrimination, AIDS is an equal opportunity virus. The “at risk” populations include all races, religions, sexual orientations, age groups and socio-economic classes.

Please join NJ Buddies in support and make a significant contribution to the fight against HIV/AIDS. Your partnership will help in the struggle to end AIDS in our communities. We welcome the chance to meet with you to discuss involvement in this year’s event. The levels of sponsorship are outlined in the Sponsorship Opportunities button below. Additionally, we welcome corporate teams of walkers and/or volunteers. Won’t you please help us make a difference in the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS at our site: the Saddle River County Park (Ridgewood Duck Pond) in Ridgewood, NJ.
