The War on AIDS can be won

Make a Difference

Please join us today as we continue to help the people affected by HIV/AIDS.

Proceeds will fund international and local initiatives by participating Rotary Clubs and NGO's to win the war on HIV/AIDS through education, prevention, treatment, support for orphans, surviving guardians and people living with AIDS. In addition, communities stricken by HIV/AIDS will be assisted in overcoming shortages of drinking water, food, or shelter – essential for recovery and a sustainable future.

Supported organizations have been carefully vetted for their effectiveness and stewardship of funds, and include active participation by Rotarians fighting HIV/AIDS.

Fun location for 2017!
Toronto Beach and Boardwalk!

Proceeds will fund international and local initiatives by participating Rotary Clubs and NGOs to win the war on HIV/AIDS through education, prevention, treatment, support for orphans, surviving guardians and people living with AIDS.

Much is being done but global leaders are falling short on promises. We must maintain our fight to keep the focus on this disease.

Article from the Star from World AIDS Day

Supported organizations have been carefully vetted for their effectiveness and stewardship of funds, and include active participation by Rotarians fighting HIV/AIDS. In addition, cooperation between clubs resulted in matching Rotary grants of an additional $50,000 in 2011.
