AIDS WALK KCThe AIDS Service Foundation’s  AIDS Walk Kansas City 2017 will be held on Saturday, April 29 at Theis Park. The walk is 3.4 miles and will take approximately 2.5 hours. Registration opens at 8 a.m.; the program with music and fun begins at 9; and the walk starts at 10 a.m.

aids-walk-route-mapUMKC is partnering with the AIDS Walk again this year. The planning committee has adapted the route so that approximately one third of the walk will be on campus. The route will hit our campus at the intersection of Volker and Rockhill, travel south on Cherry St. to 52nd St., over to Oak St. and 52nd St., and then north up to Theis Park. The entire walk will take place on sidewalks, and no streets on campus will be closed.

More than 3,000 walkers are expected to participate in the free event. There is no charge to walk.

Theis Park is located at the intersection of Emanuel Cleaver II Blvd. and Oak St., east of the Plaza and south of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

If you are interested in serving as a volunteer along the UMKC route to provide direction and support, contact Troy Lillebo at lillebot@umkc.edu.
