Ways to participate

Receiving a new diagnosis of HIV today is not the same grim specter it was in the 1980s or 1990s. In fact, for the vast majority of people, while HIV still has no cure significant advances in treatment mean that HIV can now be managed as a chronic condition with appropriate medication management. With so many people living longer and healthier lives with HIV, it’s only fitting we join together to celebrate the lives of those we love who have been impacted by HIV and the incredible strides made in treatment and prevention strategies. The Festival also serves as an opportunity for remembrance to those we have lost from AIDS-related complications and to celebrate the lasting impact they made on those whose lives they touched.       

Colorado Health Network is excited to be able to bring back an in-person Festival this year which this year will be held Saturday, August 21 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. To best support the health and safety of everyone in our community, the 5K Walk & Run will be held virtually. Participants will have the opportunity to complete a 5K route of their own choosing and will need to submit their time and event map to our race site. Check below for more information about each of the Festival’s components!
