Welcome to the Leader’s section of the 24 Hour Wake website.

This year your friends, colleagues, or family will have the opportunity to fundraise money to help children infected or affected by HIV and AIDS. Thank you for being interested in helping to run this event and spreading the word. This cannot be done without the efforts of people like you who are willing to take charge and make a difference in the world.

First of all, anyone can be a leader and host this event; it does not matter what race, religion, gender etc. All that matters is that you are committed and enthusiastic about hosting this event.

HIV and AIDS is a human problem, so everyone should be working together to those in need; no one should be prevented from helping if they really want to. Remember, HIV is 100% preventable.

Secondly, although we encourage everyone to participate, as a leader, more responsibility will fall on you to carry things out. Therefore, please sign up only if you are serious about organizing the 24 Hour Wake since a substantial amount of dedication and time will be required. You will be in charge of organizing volunteers, booking venues, collecting funds, setting up activities, promoting the 24 Hour Wake etc. However, we are here to help, if needed.

On this website, you will find links to everything you will need to be a leader. You will find donation forms, application forms, promotional materials, facts, and information about how to become a leader for the 24 Hour Wake at your venue.

If you have any additional questions and/or need more information not found here, please e-mail us.
