Then come Walk with us!

We have Walked many miles in High Heels over the years and we will do it again! Put your Heels on and join us!

Here is a little History about the AIDS Walk from Vt Cares;

Historically AIDS Walks were held to honor lives lost by the disease and walk in hope for a cure. Times have changed over the past 30 years. Medical advances have changed our fight against HIV and AIDS. Today we care for the health and well-being of individuals living with the disease and help them live the fullest life possible. We also walk to create awareness and to promote HIV Prevention.

The Vermont CARES AIDS Walk is the opportunity for the  community to get together and help Vermont CARES spread  the world about the importance of HIV Testing, education.

We know that increased testing and treatment can prevent new infections, which is why we provide education and outreach to communities at greatest risk of infection.

The Vermont CARES AIDS Walk is taking us “on the road to zero” just click below:

See Y’all in the Park!!
