"I came of age in the '80s, and lost a good man, many great friends, and a huge cross-section of the entertainment industry to AIDS. I walk in their memory."

Thanks for your support over the years, James! We'll see you on May 4.

This week's Walker of the Week is Scott Schultz! As a member of our #AIDSWalkBuffalo steering committee, Scott has helped make the event successful and memorable each year. When asked why he walks, he said:

"I walk because everybody has somebody in their life who is touched by HIV or AIDS whether they know it or not. While the approach to managing HIV has changed dramatically over the past 27 years, the stigma is just a vicious as it ever was. I look at my participation in AIDS Walk Buffalo as an annual opportunity to open a dialog around HIV and AIDS that hopefully decreases that stigma."

Thank you, Scott, for all of your support over the years!

Meet the Harm Reduction Center team! We asked why they walk, and Liz, team captain, told us:

"The Harm Reduction Center walks because years ago, people were running away from HIV and AIDS and now we walk for it. We walk for those living with HIV who are still fighting for space in this world."

Our Story

Walk With Us--- Make a difference by joining hundreds of Western New Yorkers in the 27th annual and final AIDS Walk Buffalo, as we honor the history of AIDS Walk and prepare for our Next Steps! Walk solo or with a team, and help raise funds to support HIV services in the WNY community. Fundraise Online--- It’s easy to do everything online! It’s simple and convenient to register at aidswalkbuffalo.org. Use the handy web tools to make your own web page, set up a team or join an existing one, email your family and friends, and accept online credit card contributions. Is There an Entry Fee to Participate?--- There's no entry fee, but walkers ages 13 and up are strongly encouraged to raise a minimum of $25 to walk. This is a fundraising walk and we encourage you to aim higher and surpass the minimum! Where Does the Money Go?--- Funds raised go directly to programs and services that help HIV+ individuals and their families right here in Western New York, including medical treatment, case management, counseling, housing assistance and nutritious meals. All monies raised directly benefit Evergreen Health. Should I Collect Pledges Before the Walk?--- All funds must be turned in the morning of the Walk starting at 9:00 a.m. In order to qualify for prizes and recognition, money must be turned in to AIDS Walk headquarters by 12 p.m. on May 5. Money turned in after that point will be appreciated, but will not count toward your personal or team goal.
