Gainesville CARES is dedicated to combating HIV/AIDS in North Central Florida. To this end, we are planning the 2nd Red Ribbon Run & Walk, a 5K Run and Walk at Westwood Middle School, March 23rd, 2019. Registration starts at 8:00 am, the race starts at 9:00 am, and it continues until 12 noon.

HIV/AIDS is a serious issue facing our community and in Florida there are over 100,000 people diagnosed with this disease. The purpose of our walk and run is to raise awareness and funds for the Gainesville Area AIDS Project and support programs run by the Pride Community Center of North Central Florida. However, we cannot do it without your help. We hope you decide to join our cause in fighting against HIV/AIDS. To learn more about the event and our beneficiaries, please explore our website, email us at or call us at (352)-562-0976. If you wish to make a non-sponsorship donation (click here).

We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you!
