AIDS Walk to THRIVEOrganization Type: Advocacy, Law & Politics
Address: 1101 Seymour Street, Vancouver, British Columbia V6B 3N3
BC’s first AIDS WALK was held in Vancouver in 1986 at a time when people were dying from the disease. Thirty-one years later, deaths from AIDS in BC have nearly been eradicated thanks to advances in pharmaceutical treatments and ongoing community support.
But that doesn’t mean life with HIV is always easy. The challenges are real: stigma, isolation, limited income, and the side effects of powerful medications depended on to stay alive. For too many PLHIV, living with HIV means hiding from discrimination.
The Scotiabank AIDS WALK to tHrIVe and Music Fest, shows PLHIV that they are not alone in their struggle.
WALK with us on September 16th, for strength, for health, and to THRIVE.
