Attend an Event

Thousands of people are holding events across Canada to raise awareness about the AIDS epidemic and raise funds for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, which supports community-based organizations that are turning the tide of HIV & AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.  

There might be an event happening in your community!  Check out the calendar below to find a local craft sale, participate in a walkathon, attend a concert, or hear Stephen Lewis speak.
