Day of Event Update!:

You can still register for the Walk online for just $1 with a small fundraising commitment. You can also register for both the Walk and the Run at the park for a flat $50 fee.  (Online registration for the Run has closed). If you do register online, please just let the volunteer at Check-In know you registered today.

If you cannot raise funds this year, we hope you will still join as at McFerson Commons to enjoy the festivities and cheer on the walkers and runners!

See you there!


In 2019 AIDS Walk Ohio's three walks--Central Ohio, Dayton, and Toledo--will be consolidated into one big statewide walk on April 13 in Columbus. Let's make 2019's walk the largest AIDS Walk Ohio to date! 

About AIDS Walk Ohio:

2019 Robert J. Fass AIDS Walk Ohio will take place on Saturday, April 13, 2019 in Columbus. Since 1989 over 30,000 people have participated in the walk and run, raising millions of dollars for HIV/AIDS prevention and care, saving countless lives, and improving the well-being of thousands still living with HIV/AIDS today.

Race day is an inspiring, family-friendly experience with something for everyone. The 5K walk, 5k run, and 1-mile stroll begin in the Arena District at McFerson Commons and follow the scenic Scioto Trail through downtown Columbus.


The mission of AIDS Walk 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 walkers, runners, civic leaders, corporations, and community members together in this annual event.
