OUR MISSION: To lead the fight against HIV/AIDS and improve the lives of people affected by the epidemic.

We have reached an unparalleled moment in history where the potential to end the AIDS epidemic has never been greater.

Federal health reform increases access to care for half a million Americans who currently lack health insurance. Advances in HIV medicine allow HIV-positive patients who adhere to their treatment to live virtually normal lifespans with minimal side effects. These patients also reduce the risk of transmitting HIV by 96%. Faster, cheaper and more accurate HIV diagnostic tests help more Americans learn their HIV status.

With an assortment of opportunities to make a lasting difference, AFC counts on the active involvement of our corporate and governmental partners who share our urgency to stop the epidemic’s deadly spread.

Together, it is possible to chart a better future for people and communities affected by HIV/AIDS.


AIDS Run & Walk Chicago is AFC’s grassroots fundraising event where people from all walks of life help change the story of HIV in our lifetime. As beneficiaries of the event, AFC and our Catholic Charities are greatly impacted - beyond just the obvious ways.

AIDS Run & Walk Chicago stands up to the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS allowing progress to continue toward ending the epidemic. Run & Walk invigorates the sector by increasing awareness for the cause, growing our passionate community and allowing new leaders to emerge.
