More about AREA:

The American Run for the End of AIDS (AREA) is an all-volunteer AIDS awareness, advocacy and education organization working at the grassroots level of AIDS activism in an urban environment. From our founding event in 1986-87, The American Run for the End of AIDS, a 20-month, 9,000 mile solo run around the continental United States, our mission has always been to provide a message of concern and compassion, of commitment to working together for an end of AIDS, a message of hope and belief that ordinary people can make extraordinary differences. AREA networks with other groups and individuals, sharing information and resources and offering support. Our purpose, first and foremost, is to help prevent any further HIV transmissions and AIDS deaths by advocating for AIDS issues and by creating opportunities for raising the levels of awareness, activism and volunteerism among our fellow citizens, as well as among our leaders in all areas of government, business, the arts, and religion. We are also dedicated to archiving the battle against AIDS and remembering those who have been lost, because we believe that history is one of our most powerful and effective tools for AIDS education and prevention.
