You Make It Happen

The funds you raise stay right here in South Florida and go toward lifesaving care and services for people living with HIV. We could not have the same impact without you. That’s why we’re proud to offer exciting perks and rewards for everyone who raises funds for Florida AIDS Walk & Music Festival.
