 2020 Rotary AIDS & Community Health Walk
 Description

WE'RE WALKING FOR COMMUNITY HEALTH!

 Progress ThermometerWe have transformed the Rotary AIDS Poker Walk into the Rotary AIDS & Community Health Walk!

 In December 2019, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) released its “HIV in Canada—Surveillance Report, 2018”, which revealed that the number of new HIV cases in Canada has jumped 25.3% over the past four years; from 2,040 in 2014 to 2,561 in 2018.

Over 68,000 individuals are currently living with HIV in Canada, 14% of whom are unaware of their HIV status. And now we are facing another global pandemic: COVID-19 which is putting people with underlying health conditions and other vulnerabilities at even greater risk.

While we can’t gather for a walk in-person this year, the need for donations to HIV/AIDS and other community health organizations is greater than ever before. The good news is that we can make a difference by our action.

Participate by creating a fundraising team, getting people to donate, and recording a 10 to 15 second clip of yourself walking. It can be inside or outdoors. Have fun with it! In late July (July 29th at 7:00 p.m.), we gather on YouTube to see the compilation of walk videos and hear from our partner organizations.

Here’s what to do:

  1. Form a team – create a team name & set up your team and member donation pages
  2. Pick a Canadian registered charity to support – must be related to HIV/AIDS and/or community health (including food security and housing)
  3. Ask people to donate to your team online - use every possible communication method!
  4. Record a short video (10-15 seconds) of yourself walking and submit it by 22 July 2020 (see Submit your Challenge Video!).
  5. Join the Rotary AIDS & Community Health Walk YouTube celebration on Wednesday, July 29 at 7:00 p.m.

 Not able to “walk” this year? Please consider supporting any of the walk teams listed on this site!

 

Will Donors Receive Tax Receipts?

Yes - all on-line donations of $20.00 or more will receive an instant, CRA-approved, tax receipt that's easily printed. As per CRA rules tax receipts are issued in the name of the credit card holder.
