Thank you for your interest in volunteering. AIDS Walk Portland is a welcoming, inclusive event. We encourage everyone to attend, especially those representing diverse communities of race, color, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, faith, age, national origin, citizenship status and physical or mental disability. It's a day for all of us to show support and increase awareness of the HIV/AIDS community.

AIDS Walk Portland

  • Physical Requirements: Nearly all positions require standing. Contact Volunteer Resources with any individual needs. 


Some volunteers want to register and raise money for AIDS Walk in addition to volunteering, which is wonderful! If you have a shift during the Walk, keep in mind that you don't have to actually do the Walk to register as a walker. Or, if you want to walk you could take a volunteer shift before or after, such as Set Up or Tear Down. Either way, click on the "Register to Walk" button at the top of this page and join a team or start your own team with friends or family. Thank you so much for supporting Cascade AIDS Project.
