Since 1986, AIDS Walk New York has raised more than $105 million for HIV programs and services in the tri-state area, and has grown into the largest AIDS fundraising event in the world. In 2009 alone, 45,000 participants, many of whom were members of 2,880 corporate and community teams, raised a record sum of over $5.6 million for Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC) and 50 other local AIDS service organizations.
There are two great ways to get involved: joining the Yale Team or being an Event Volunteer.
1.) To join the Yale Team, please contact the School Team Coordinator at AIDS Walk for details at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 212-807-9255. The Walk officially starts at 10:00 am, and the Yale Team will gather at 9:00 am. The Walk takes about 203 hours and children of all ages are welcome to participate with a parent.
2.) To become an Event Volunteer, please contact email@example.com for details. AIDS Walk needs over 2,000 people to help manage the event, so we are hoping that you'll sign up to assist. By volunteering as a Monitor, you'll be along the route cheering on the walkers, keeping them safe at key intersections along the route, and directing the flow of participant traffic. As Sign-in Volunteers, you'll be checking in the walkers when they arrive in the morning and collecting the funds they have raised. All names of volunteers are due May 3, so please register early!
There is an orientation for both the Monitors and Sign-in Volunteers. Monitors have two orientation options: at GMHC offices at 119 West 24th Street on May 11 or at the Met Museum on May 15. Sign-in Volunteers have two orientation options: at GMHC offices at 119 West 24th Street on May 11 or at New World Stages on May 15. These are not mandatory to volunteer, but strongly recommended.
