Our Mission

Nashville CARES mission is to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Middle Tennessee.

We work to achieve this through education, advocacy and support for those at risk for or living with HIV.

With your help, Nashville CARES offers services annually to 50,000 Middle Tennesseans living with or at risk for HIV, including HIV prevention education to more than 29,000 youth and adults; almost 10,000 confidential HIV tests; and essential support services to 3,400 men, women and children living with the disease.

Nashville CARES has what it takes to end the epidemic. Your AIDS Walk team has what it takes to make it possible.

The Annual Nashville AIDS Walk is a family-friendly event that has raised more than $3 million to help end the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Middle Tennessee. On October 5th, join thousands of supporters in Public Square Park to bring awareness. 

Register as a team or individual to raise funds to help Nashville CARES end the HIV epidemic in Middle Tennessee!

Our goal is to raise $200,000 and we need your help.

Participation is easy:

  • Create a fundraising team

  • Join an existing team
