AIDS Walk - July 14, 2019:

Please join us for this fun day in the park! This is one of our favorite events of the year. We’ll gather for breakfast, walk together taking in the beautiful scenery of Golden Gate Park and the AIDS Memorial Grove, and have a great picnic lunch.

Feel free to participate as much as you wish - walking the whole route or a short and sweet stroll. If you are busy the day of the walk, you can still be on the team and raise money as a virtual walker. Every dollar counts and it all adds up.

Positive Being is dedicated to improving the quality of life for those living with HIV through healing touch. We foster the integration of the physical, healing, and spiritual nature of our bodies to effect positive change in the health and well-being of those with HIV.

We provide regular low-cost massage to those who would have to do without. Our annual nurturing touch retreat, Exploring the Body Positive, helps to improve body image and reclaim our bodies as a site of well-being and a source of healing strength. For details on the retreat, visit positivebeing.org.

Almost all the money we raise goes directly to clients because we are an all-volunteer organization. Positive Being was started by HIV+ massage therapists who care deeply about healing our community through nurturing touch.
