The 28th annual AIDS Walk Miami returns to South Beach on Sunday with a different route.

This year, the 5K walk will begin and end at Soundscape Park at 500 17th St. It will follow a route on Lincoln Road Mall, through the Art Deco district, along Washington Avenue and Lummus Park.

Attendees are encouraged to park at three nearby city-owned parking garages behind the New World Symphony and behind City Hall.

The event will benefit Care Resource and Food For Life Network.

“We can truly make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past,” said Jonathan Welsh, marketing and development manager for Care Resource. “We, together, can create an AIDS-free generation.”

Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is the walk’s grand marshal, and WSVN Channel 7’s Robbin Simmons will be the master of ceremonies.

About 1,200 walkers are expected to participate. Pets are welcome.
