80's Rock AIDS Walk

First Arch Picnic Site, Rock wood Park

The 80's Rock AIDS walk is Avenue B's major fundraiser for the year, with the proceeds going towards our programs and services in Saint John, as well as throughout South Western New Brunswick. Our goal as an organization is to reduce harm in the community through education, prevention and general public awareness. With the money raised from the fundraiser we are able to provide services such as: a resource library, treatment information, advocacy, awareness events, educational presentations and workshops, a needle distribution program, referrals and support for people struggling in the community. The AIDS Walk offers an opportunity to build connections by bringing together our clients, staff, volunteers, and supportive members of the community. The event is meant to appeal to all ages, and has included in the past a barbecue, a craft table, and best of all, live music. Any teams or individuals are welcome to collect pledges and join us in September for the walk.
