    • Proceed to your team meeting space.

Volunteer photographers will be on hand to take a team photo of you and your group. E-mail us after the event (THSinfo@unmmg.org) to get a copy of your photo. Team photos will be taken between 12 PM and 1:45 PM.  Gather your team near the HWNM5k banner near the stage and photographers will snap your picture. Team photos will not be available after the Walk begins. We recommend carrying a team sign so that your team can be identified in photos and along the walk route. Have fun, be creative and show your HIV Walk New Mexico & 5K Fun Run pride.

Additional Tips and Suggestions

  • Pick a team meeting spot in advance. This will be a good frame of reference should you and the members of your team get separated.
  • We recommend that you bring a cell phone to the park so that you can contact those you are hoping to meet up with. There will be no announcements for “lost folks” from the stage.
  • You should wear comfortable, light clothing such as shorts and comfortable tennis shoes. If the weather forecast calls for it, bring sunglasses; sunscreen; a disposable poncho or an umbrella in case of rain; and any other personal items you might need. HIV Walk New Mexico & 5K Fun Run is Rain or Shine!
  • Water will be available along the route.
  • Please check the weather forecast in advance and dress appropriately.
  • Enjoy the day!
