AIDS Walk Orange County for the third year, will feature a Red Ribbon 5k Fun Run to bring runners to our historic community charity event.
The Red Ribbon 5k Fun Run is a fun, community, all inclusive running event for runners of all fitness levels. The main requirement for this 5k is that you have heart and want to unite with other runners in the fight to end AIDS in Orange County!
All proceeds of this run goes to HIV/AIDS prevention and support programs in our community.
The Red Ribbon 5k Fun Run is less about your speed and performance and more about health, compassion and community! The 5k route winds through the William R. Mason Regional Park and will feature water stations, entertainment, cheering and cookies and chocolate milk at the finish line! There will be prizes for the best, most outrageous costumes! The mile route markers will be made by children who are directly, personally impacted by HIV/AIDS and who attend AIDS Services Foundation’s Kid’s Club. These markers will serve as a reminder about why this 5k is so important.
After the run, all runners are invitied to stay and join in all the fun of the AIDS Walk Festival with live music, food and drink, carnival booths, art, AIDS Memorial Quilt and tent and the Human Red Ribbon Project that will be presented by hundreds of Orange County high school students.
