Support Season of Concern by Joining The SOC AIDS Run & Walk Team

Each year, the AIDS Foundation selects a limited number of organizations as partners in the AIDS Run & Walk Chicago. We are delighted to announce that Season of Concern was selected this year as one of 32 Chicago area organizations that will participate in the CommunityDirect partnership program. Season of Concern has been given the opportunity to raise funds to advance its mission at this year’s AIDS Run & Walk Chicago on Sunday, September 14 at Arvey Field in Grant Park. Please consider joining the Season of Concern Team or contributing to one of our members. Ninety per cent of the funds raised by our team will be returned to support SOC programs including our support of AIDS organizations providing direct care to individuals living with HIV/AIDS as well as our support of The Actors Fund and the Biscotto Miller Fund which each assist members of the theatre community impacted by HIV/AIDS and other catastrophic illness or injury. Since 1988 when Season of Concern was founded at the height of the AIDS epidemic, over $2.5 million has been raised to provide support for our community.

Join the team by registering here or contributing to the goal of one of our team members. We'd be thrilled if you can walk as an individual, as a theatre company or as a cast. The Walk start time is 9:20am so we will gather between 8:45 and 9am. Registration is $30 for walkers and $40 for runners. Together we will work together and walk together to support our community and raise awareness.

Join today to help us take advantage of this opportunity. There is no limit on what we can do together.
