Our Mission

The mission of Joining Hearts is to raise awareness, and funds to support prevention, care, and
housing assistance to those impacted by HIV/AIDS in Atlanta.

Joining Hearts isn’t just about a party or an event; it’s a lifesaver and a tribute to life. To keep the connection to our mission, we remind our guests of the ongoing need for awareness and funding for HIV/AIDS in Atlanta.

Last year (2020), the following organizations benefited from our mission:

This Summer

The Atlanta Pride Run returns!
June 20th, 8am

Joining Hearts is proud once again to partner with the Atlanta Pride Run and invites you to join us this year in an effort to reconnect safely at Piedmont Park (or virtually)! As part of this effort, the Atlanta Pride Run will follow current guidelines from local authorities on social distancing by both limiting the amount of registrants and staggering start times. We strongly encourage participants to get vaccinated.

Regular Pricing (6/1 – 6/19): $35
Race Day (6/20): $40
Virtual 5K (4/1 – 6/17): $35

All registrations come with a 2021 Atlanta Pride Run shirt guaranteed in your size with registration until 6/13/21. Afterwards, they’ll be while supplies last.

Register Today!!

For over 30 years the objective of the Atlanta Pride Run has been to generate awareness for the LGBTQ+ community in the greater Atlanta area, and to fundraise for Joining Hearts.

Interested in joining us for the 5K but not really the running type? This is open to walkers too, so grab some friends, don your best pride gear, and walk in pride with us.

Dear Joining Hearts Family,

Following a year of upheaval, cancelled plans, and virtual events, Joining Hearts is happy – and cautiously optimistic – to announce: Main Event 34 “Together ATLast”

The safety of our community is always our top priority. We are taking CDC guidelines and the City of Atlanta restrictions into consideration – as well as some of our own – as we plan this event. The feedback you provided from our most recent survey is guiding our choices as we move forward.

Getting back to “normal” is all any of us want; there’s also reality. We have all had to make changes in how we interact with each other – and this is no different. This year’s Main Event 34 “Together ATLast” will be:

Smaller – limited tickets will be available to encourage physical distancing
Safer – vaccine requirements & restricted access to indoor space
Simpler – no grand gestures here; we’re keeping what you love about the Main Event and streamlining the rest

“Together ATLast” will take place on July 17, 2021; mark your calendars!

Tickets, pricing and additional information will be forthcoming.

Best regards,
Jerry Henderson
President Joining Hearts, Inc.
