Getting to zero will require all of us: that's zero stigma, zero discrimination, zero new infections, and zero deaths from AIDS-related complications. It takes more than just one person or one organization, more than just one day or one event. It takes all of us joining together to celebrate how far we have come, honor the journey and remember the loved ones we have lost, and above all to rally together in solidarity with our community as a testament to the strength and resilience of all those impacted by HIV.
Festival For Life 5K Walk and Run is the Rocky Mountain region’s oldest one-day HIV and AIDS fundraiser. For over thirty years, thousands of people from across Colorado have joined together as a community to raise money for organizations that provide vital services to people living with or at risk of acquiring HIV.
In addition to the traditional 5K Walk/Run, the Festival features live music and entertainment, food trucks, a beer garden, volleyball tournament, and family-friendly activities. As part of the day’s storied tradition, we will display panels from The Names Project – AIDS Memorial Quilt, an act of remembrance for all affected by HIV/AIDS.
