About AIDS Walk & 5K Run 2011

By race/ethnicity, African Americans face the most severe burden of HIV in the United States (US). At the end of 2007, blacks accounted for almost half (46%) of people living with a diagnosis of HIV infection in the 37 states and 5 US dependent areas with long-term, confidential, name-based HIV reporting. In 2006, blacks accounted for nearly half (45%) of new infections in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Even though new HIV infections among blacks overall have been roughly stable since the early 1990s, compared with members of other races and ethnicities they continue to account for a higher proportion of cases at all stages of HIV—from new infections to deaths.

  1. Information about the Day of the Event! October 16, 2011

    Getting there

    The best way to get to AIDS Walk Atlanta & 5K Run (Piedmont Park) is to take MARTA to the Midtown Station. Travel East on 10th Street crossing Peachtree Street and Piedmont Road. You will see The Meadow of Piedmont Park on your left. Walk past the stage and continue to the Check-In Tent.

    Street Parking

    If you absolutely must travel by car you may, but the area is extremely congested and parking is very limited. Residential neighborhood streets have resident permit parking only. Please beware of posted parking signs. Please do not leave any valuables in your car, leave them at home.
