Thanks to everyone who attended AIDS Walk Central Ohio 2017! We look forward to seeing you again in April of 2018!

The 2017 Robert J. Fass Memorial AIDS Walk Central Ohio will take place on Saturday, April 15, 2017 in Columbus. This year’s tri-city walk/run/ride is slated to be the largest HIV/AIDS awareness event in Ohio.


The mission of AIDS Walk Central Ohio is to raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS service organizations through education and promotional activities leading up to the walk and through the participation of corporations, walkers, runners, civic leaders and community members together in this annual event.

"I walk because, as a member of the Equitas Health Board, I’ve seen firsthand the incredible impact their programs, services, and care have on thousands of Ohioans affected by HIV/AIDS," says SeSe. 

Our goal for this year’s event is 2,000 participants and $340,000 in funds for HIV/AIDS services.
