“And the Walk Continues…” on June 25
The Honolulu AIDS Walk began in 1991 as way for the community to come together in support of people living with HIV, as well as their friends and family members, at a time when many suffered and died from AIDS-related illnesses. There’s been a lot of progress in the prevention and treatment of HIV, including the availability of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a daily medication that can help prevent HIV transmission.
Yet there are over 700 people living with HIV on O῾ahu who need ongoing care and support.
After two years of having a virtual walk due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are scheduled to have a live, in person walk again at Kapi῾olani Park for the 31st Honolulu AIDS Walk on Saturday, June 25.
Many have already registered and joined teams for this year’s walk on the official Honolulu AIDS Walk website. Join them today!
Last year KHON2 produced a 30-minute feature, “Friends for Life,” on the history of the Honolulu AIDS Walk. It features Life Foundation founder Dr. David McEwan, businessman and civil rights champion Jack Law, Lieutenant Governor Josh Green, and Hawaiian music legend Henry Kapono, who played a song he wrote in honor of the late brother of entertainer Brickwood Galuteria.
