AIDS Walk New York

In 1986 the Gay Men’s Health Crisis held the first AIDS Walk in New York and 4,500 walkers raised $710,000. Today, the 21st AIDS Walk New York saw 47,000 walkers raise an estimated $6.47 million.

The 10-kilometer walk began and ended at Fifth Avenue and 59th Street in Central Park, looping around the park and overflowing the streets. Three checkpoints along the route, staffed by volunteers, provided walkers with refreshments, toilet facilities and cheers.
