Plans are in full swing for Nine Circles’ upcoming event, the Red Ribbon Walk & Run, and we’re hoping it’ll be the best one yet. Formally known as AIDS Walk, the Red Ribbon Walk & Run is our largest annual fundraiser and is instrumental in helping us grow and improve our services for people living with HIV.
On Sunday, September 22, 2019, join us for an event that brings the community together in the fight against HIV stigma and raises money for programs that help people living with HIV thrive. The event features activities in Vimy Ridge Memorial Park, and your choice of a 2km walk, or a 5km run.
“Being diagnosed at 23 years old, I felt a great deal of fear and shame and I isolated myself because of the stigmas attached to HIV. The support, information, and treatment I got from Nine Circles helped me in all aspects of my well-being and donations through events like the Red Ribbon Walk & Run ensured those resources were available for me.” -Marco, Nine Circles client

Fundraising can be easy and fun! Connect with friends and family members for donations, and get creative with fun strategies to raise money.
Some ideas could be:
- Host a BBQ, bake sale, book sale, or rummage sale and donate profits to your fundraising. Selling your items? Use social media or Kijiji for convenience.
- Host a poker/game night, where ‘the pot’ goes to your fundraising.
- Use social media to ask for donations.
We hope you will join us in this great cause.
