The AIDS Walk Kansas City 2016 will be held on Saturday, April 30 at Theis Park. The walk is 3.4 miles and will take approximately two and one-half hours.
Registration opens at 8 a.m. The program with music and fun begins at 9 a.m.; and the walk starts at 10 a.m.
UMKC is partnering with the AIDS Walk again this year. The planning committee has adapted the route and 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 to Theis Park. The entire walk will take place on sidewalks, and no streets on the UMKC campus will close.
More than 3,500 walkers are expected to participate in the free event.
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 Doug Swink.
