RAIN ensures access to quality, personalized care in a nurturing environment for individuals and their families who are living with HIV and associated chronic conditions so they may live healthier fulfilled lives.
Through education and advocacy, RAIN promotes disease prevention, understanding and dignity for those affected by HIV and for those who are at risk.
We have many different opportunities for you to volunteer with RAIN so please take a moment to review the different opportunities that are available – there is a place for each and every one of you to stand out in the crowd.
The one hour volunteer orientation is from 6:00 to 7:00 PM. If you are interested in attending this orientation please contact Steven Burleson.
Thank you in advance for your interest in RAIN and for wanting to stand out in the crowd.

The 22 annual AIDS WALK Charlotte is one of the largest HIV awareness and fundraising event in the Carolinas. Over two decades, AIDS WALK Charlotte has raised over $2 million for HIV/AIDS prevention activities and care for those infected. AIDS WALK Charlotte is a visual representation of the Charlotte region’s commitment to caring for our neighbors in need and slowing the spread of this devastating disease.
We walk bravely because our lives and the lives of others have been touched by HIV and AIDS.
We walk bravely because it’s our opportunity to stand up and be counted.
We invite YOU to walk bravely because all of us have or will be touched by HIV.
On Saturday, May 5, brave individuals walk two miles through the heart of Uptown Charlotte in celebration of the past, present and an HIV free future.
The walk is approximately two miles long and takes the average person about 30 minutes. There is a morning program to kick-off and a brief closing ceremony will follow after the walk. Water is provided for free to all registered walkers. AIDS WALK Charlotte is a family affair (kids and pets are welcomed) and open to all who want to participate.
