Hundreds of spectacularly costumed runners, walkers, and skippers are expected on Saturday, August 13 at the second annual Big Gay 10k, a fabulous only-in-San-Francisco event to support the HIV/AIDS prevention and care programs of San Francisco AIDS Foundation.

Registration for The Big Gay 10K is $35 and includes a limited-edition Big Gay 10k wrist sweatband. Fundraising is optional, but all participants are eligible to receive additional incentive prizes by raising money to support the vital services of the foundation.
Following the race, the fun continues at Lookout bar in the Castro for the official after party of The Big Gay 10k. Drink and food specials are offered to participants through a generous donation from Lookout, located at 3600 16th St at Market St. in the heart of San Francisco‘s Castro District.

About San Francisco AIDS Foundation
No city experienced epidemic levels of HIV faster than San Francisco. At San Francisco AIDS Foundation, we work to end the epidemic where it first took hold, and eventually everywhere. Established in 1982, our mission is the radical reduction of new infections in San Francisco. Through education, advocacy and direct services for prevention and care, we are confronting HIV in communities most vulnerable to the disease. We refuse to accept that HIV transmission is inevitable.
