ARRIVAL & DROP-OFF
You MUST arrive at our rally point by 2:00 p.m.
We will not know the exact location of our rally point until approximately 12:00 p.m. when our staff arrives. We will post our location on this page of the website as well as social media channels.
Staff, interns, and volunteers will also be easily identifiable by their Out Youth shirts and our Out Youth banner.
The Walk will begin and end at Palm Park. All youth need to have their rides ready to pick them up at 3:00 p.m. or have permission from parents and/or guardians to stay and enjoy the post-Walk celebration.
If you registered online with the AIDS Walk, you can pick up your Walk shirt at the registration tent. You can also register the day of the Walk. The registration fee for a shirt is $20.
There is no registration fee for just walking. You are also not required to register with Out Youth to walk with us.
