13th Annual Aneurysm and AVM Awareness Walk

Sunday, May 06, 2018



1 Incredible Day, 2 Choices to Lead the Way. Because Every. Step. COUNTS!

Join The Aneurysm and AVM Foundation (TAAF) in continuing our National Day of Aneurysm and AVM Awareness, Sunday, May 6, 2018! It's an incredible day with 2 easy ways to make a difference in our community!

1) TAAFWalk SF: Walk with us in San Francisco as we celebrate our 13th Annual Aneurysm and AVM Awareness Walk! Join hundreds of survivors, caregivers, medical professionals, and community members as we raise awareness and funds to support our programs, educational outreach, and research grants.

1 mile, 2 mile, and 5K walk routes will take you around historic Crissy Field to the base of the majestic Golden Gate Bridge. Afterwards, join us at the East Beach picnic and parking area for a celebration which includes food, raffle prizes, live music, and inspiring speakers.

  • 9am: Check-in begins (East Beach picnic area)
  • 9:45am: Opening Remarks
  • 10am: Walk begins (around Crissy Field)
  • 10:30am - 1pm: Celebration (East Beach picnic and parking area)

2) TAAFWalk My Town: Can’t make it to SF? Raise awareness and make an impact on aneurysm and AVM research in your neighborhood; register as a "TAAFWalk My Town" participant. We can help you locate a favorite park, share accurate aneurysm/AVM facts, you name it. And remember, each TAAFWalk My Town participant receives a walk t-shirt and qualifies for the same fundraising gifts as those in SF. 




Free parking is available at the East Beach Lot. It's first come, first served with access beginning at 8:45AM. There is additional free parallel parking alongside the entirety of Mason Street. Do no park at the Sports Basement lot. For paid parking options (max typically $8/day), consider using ParkMe. Most sites are within 5-10 minute walk of the East Beach picnic area.  

If you're using GPS, use 1199 East Beach, San Francisco, CA 94129.  Give yourself extra time in the morning and do not reply solely on GPS.
