Help us reach our goal this year of raising over $300,000. These funds go to supporting the vital work of Fenway Health and AIDS Action as they provide care and services to our community members. Every dollar raised means more programs and services for those who count on your support. 

Join us as a Corporate sponsor to help us reach our fundraising goals while celebrating your company's commitment to LGBTQIA+ inclusion.

Started in 1986, the AIDS Walk and the thousands of participants we have had during the last 37 years have made a significant impact in the lives of those living with HIV/AIDS. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on vulnerable people living with HIV/AIDS, and the need for care and services has never been greater.

This year, we have rebranded to Strides for Action because of the need to expand our focus and support to our vulnerable community members.

Strides for Action unites hundreds of participants of all ages in support of Fenway Health and AIDS Action’s essential programs and services. Will you join us?!
