Since 1987, AIDS Walk San Francisco has raised over $65 million for HIV /AIDS programs and services in the SF Bay Area. In 2007 alone, 25,000 participants raised a record sum of $4.6 million for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and more than 40 Bay Area HIV/AIDS organizations.
AIDS Walk San Francisco is notable not only for its size, but also for its diversity. People of all ages, races, and backgrounds come together each year in a massive, powerful, and inspiring demonstration of compassion and action.
Funds generated from AIDS Walk San Francisco benefit the San Francisco AIDS Foundation (SFAF). For 26 years, SFAF has provided direct services to thousands of people living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS.

We urge you to take this important step in the fight against AIDS by registering for the AIDS Walk. The funds you raise will go toward providing direct services to thousands of men, women, and children living with HIV/AIDS in the San Francisco Bay Area.
You may register as an individual walker, as part of a team of walkers, or as a Star Walker (Star Walkers are participants who pledge set a goal to raise $1,000 or more) . There is no fee to register, but we encourage everyone to raise funds. Last year, the average walker raised more than $325! Any amount you raise is greatly needed and appreciated.
Once you register, you'll receive all of the appropriate AIDS Walk materials in the mail so you can begin fundraising. You can also choose to become a Green Walker and receive all your materials electronically. In addition, you will receive your username and password to create your personal fundraising Web page.
