Held each September since 2013, MAO’s Tread Red Walk & Fun Run reminds us what can be accomplished with a growing sense of community. Together, we can build a future in which quality care is within reach of everyone and no one is afraid to seek out potentially life-saving testing, care and counseling. When we WALK, we walk TOGETHERCLICK HERE to experience a bit of the 2017 Tread Red Walk & Fun Run.

For the past several years, Tread Red has been held in downtown Montgomery, with the start and finish at the historic Montgomery Train Shed located at 300 Water Street. Proceeds from Tread Red support the efforts of MAO to address the health and wellness needs of those infected or affected by potentially life-threatening illnesses, including HIV and Hepatitis C, in rural Alabama. Donations to MAO for the support of Tread Red are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
