Participating with a team is the best way to raise the most money for HIV/AIDS.  And it’s the most fun, too!

AIDS Run Philly Teams are simply groups of fundraising participants.  Teams can represent companies, schools, organizations, communities, or even just a group of your friends and family.  A team can be made up of any combination walkers, runners, volunteers, and virtual walkers.

To join an already-existing team, register for this year's event as a Walker, Runner, Volunteer, or Virtual Walker, and include your team number when prompted. If you'd like to be a Team Captain and/or are considering creating a new team, check out our Team Captain Center!

Why should I join a team?

To Educate Others

Participating in the AIDS Run Philly is a unique chance to educate others about HIV and AIDS.  We can provide your organization with speakers to talk about the Walk and the impact of AIDS on our communities.  Speakers can address your organization’s team kickoff, monthly meeting, school assembly, or gathering.  Forming a team at your company, school, or organization helps to educate others that AIDS is still a serious threat and gives you and your teammates an opportunity to talk to others about the importance of education and prevention.

To Demonstrate Your Commitment

It is a powerful show of solidarity the day of AIDS Run Philly to see banners representing businesses, congregations, schools, neighborhoods, and families all committed to raising funds for AIDS prevention, education, and direct care services. Your team presence will demonstrate your organization’s commitment to your community.  No one should feel alone in the fight against AIDS.

To Raise More Money

People who walk as part of a team raise more money.  Team members help to recruit additional walkers and encourage others to meet their fundraising goals.

To Have Fun!

Walking with a team is fun and helps make the 5 kilometers pass quickly.  A team can also be a great morale booster for your organization. There is lots of entertainment along the Walk route, and everyone is invited to the free concert and refreshments following the Walk.
