This Sunday, April 23rd, Soundscape Park in Miami Beach—a few minutes’ walk from The Winter Haven Hotel—will host the kick-off of AIDS Walk Miami. A proud local tradition that supports programs Care Resource and Food For Life Network Food Bank, it’s well worth checking out and supporting. Here are five ways to help the cause.
Sponsor A Participant
No matter where you are today or at the time of the walk, you can sponsor a participant, which is the fundraiser’s main mode of raising money. This search-and-donate page allows you to find an AIDS Walk Miami participant and then sponsor their walk. Don’t know anyone in the walk? Don’t worry, there are more ways to help.
An equally direct and positive way to support the mission of AIDS Walk Miami is to register to walk yourself. You can register here to start a team, walk yourself, or walk with friends or a loved one. Even if this wasn’t on your list for things to do in Miami, it’ll sure be a rewarding and healthy way to explore the city.
If you’re not available to walk, one of the best ways to support AIDS Walk Miami is to explore the Gift Matching Program. Essentially, a lot of companies out there offer these types of programs where they’ll match an employee’s donation to a certain charity or fundraiser. This is an exciting and unique way to go above and beyond.
Donate To Care Resource
At the heart of this storied and important event is Care Resource, an important non-profit that serves as South Florida’s leading resource for HIV/AIDS education and treatment. If you’re in town and moved by all of the exuberant walkers, donating to Care Resource is a simple way to support the cause.
Come On Out & Cheer On The Walkers
On top of all the donations, this event helps spread awareness and support for the fight against HIV/AIDS. Keeping that in mind, making the event something memorable and well attended is wildly important. So, if you’re in Miami this Sunday, come on out and cheer on the walkers.
