Star Walkers

Star Walkers are AIDS Walk New York’s fundraising elite: those who set a goal to raise $1,000 or more. In 2018, Star Walkers raised more than $1 million of the over $4.4 million total!

There is no obligation to reach your goal of $1,000 or more. However, as a Star Walker, you will receive personalized support and fundraising advice from our dedicated Fundraising Specialist every step of the way. When you reach your goal, you will receive royal treatment on the day of the walk, among other special perks!
Our Star Walkers are leaders in our mission to end AIDS. It takes dedication and commitment to achieve fundraising goals at any level and we are grateful to all our participants for their personal contributions towards a successful event. By setting an ambitious personal fundraising goal, you’re able to increase awareness of and support thousands who are living with and affected by HIV and AIDS.
