More than 2,000 local humanitarians will come together to end the HIV epidemic, expand healthcare access, and remember those friends and family members who we lost because of AIDS.
The 2021 Desert AIDS Walk will be an in-person event Saturday, Oct. 30, 2021, beginning at Ruth Hardy Park and following a route through downtown Palm Springs. The family and pet-friendly event includes a Health and Wellness Festival presented by Walgreens.
The annual Desert AIDS Walk helps fund the vital work of DAP Health. Registration opens August 2 at www.desertaidswalk.org.
DAP Health honors Annette Bloch
DAP Health honors the passing of philanthropist and beloved community leader Annette Bloch, who will be remembered for meeting her personal goal of “improving the lives of others.” The philanthropist found joy in seeing her generous gifts change lives in Kansas City and Palm Springs, the communities she called home.
Bloch became part of DAP Health’s response to the HIV/AIDS crisis after her friend Barbara Keller gave her a tour of the organization’s campus. She used her philanthropy to help DAP Health fulfill its mission of enhancing community health and well-being. Her endorsement invited countless others to fund the organization.
