Because of COVID-19, this year's Lexington AIDS Walk with AVOL will be a live streaming event.
We have come together for 30 years, mostly in person, but now virtually, for our annual AIDS Walk to celebrate the strides made toward ending HIV in Kentucky. As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, we will once again hold our AIDS Walk virtually. We wish we could be together for the Lexington AIDS Walk, Roll and Stroll. Safety is of the upmost importance and we encourage you to practice social distancing, mask up, and help the community the best you can! AVOL's focus is, and always will be, the well-being and health of our community.
Join us for a Special Event Broadcast at 2 pm on April 25, 2021 online at RadioLex – 93.9 fm!
See local HIV Care Heroes walk the miracle mile, raise awareness, and critical program funding. A radio simulcast will provide information about HIV, AVOL Kentucky, our sponsors, success stories and HIV cause-related music through the years. Be sure to tune in!
