Since 1986, AIDS Walk New York has been the world’s largest and most visible HIV/AIDS fundraising event. Much of its success is due to the hundreds of volunteers who support the event every year. That’s where you come in! We would love for you to volunteer...and share the invite with your friends, family, and colleagues.
