Time: 12pm - 3pm
Take Action. Lace Up! The World AIDS Day RED RUN returns to Victoria Park, London on Saturday 30th November 2019 to raise awareness and funds for vital HIV services across the UK.
This is the UK's largest HIV community fundraising event and this year we celebrate the RED RUN’s 10th birthday!
The 2019 RED RUN takes place against the backdrop of a momentous time in the world of HIV. We have seen a dramatic fall in new HIV diagnosis, particularly amongst gay men in London. London has exceeded the UNAIDS 90:90:90 target. Undetectable=Untransmittable is an evidence-based statement. The brilliant fact that a person living with HIV diagnosed early and accessing treatment is likely to live as long as someone of a similar age and background.
However, amongst the good news the challenge remains that not everyone, and not all communities are benefiting. 103,000 people are currently living with HIV in the UK (50,000 in London). HIV stigma is still a reality and there are still too many people undiagnosed and diagnosed late. Funding cuts to the HIV sector are still all too common despite the fact that HIV support services change lives.
Now is most certainly not the time for us to stand down! Take Action. Lace Up!
