Join the Red Run

Friday, November 9th, 2018 in Event, Get Involved

The largest HIV fundraising event – Red Run – is back on 1st December, and we are excited to invite you to support Positively UK once again!

When: 1st December, 11am – 15:00pm

Where: Victoria Park, E9 5EG (NE corner). It’s a 7-minute walk from Hackney Wick Overground.

Along with our peer-led support, Positively UK offers welfare advice and financial support in extreme circumstances. Our hardship payments act as a safety net to cover day-to-day living costs. This year we are hoping to raise funds for our Hardship Fund.

You can run/walk/strut 5k or 10k, or you can simply come to cheer those who will take part. Changing rooms and bag storage will be available.

We will encourage all Red Runners to bring a jumper that they wish to donate. They will wear the jumper until the race begins. We’ll then collect all the jumpers and donate them to Wandsworth Oasis and their charity shops.

DJs from Horse Meat Disco/Eagle and DENIM will help keep people entertained during. Madam Storm will perform a powerful strut.

London City Voices will sing along the route and flash song mob during the start.

We’ll have an AIDS Memorial marquee, consisting of AIDS Memorial quilts, exhibition curated by the The Welcome Collection and candles that people can place in the shape of a ribbon.

Starbucks will generously pour all participants and guests hot drinks, and the beautiful people at the People’s Park Tavern will once again be hosting the official World AIDS Day Red Run after party with a special BBQ deal: £10 for a burger and beer served in a large heated marquee next to the finish line.

Bring your friends and family, all are welcome to join in the Red Run festivities!
