Please note that the date for the Walk to End HIV has moved to December 1 due to heavy rain expected on October 27.
Dignity Washington and Dignity NoVA have joined forces to sponsor a team in this event which will be held on Saturday December 1, which is World AIDS Day. The team name is The Dignity Washington and Dignity Northern Virginia Team in Memory of Jimmy DePersis, who was our representative to this event for many years before his passing in October 2009.
Held for the past 32 years, the Walk & 5K to End HIV is Whitman Walker Health’s signature fundraiser that calls on thousands of Washington, DC area residents to strap up their shoes and walk or run to support WWH’s mission of providing dependable, high-quality, comprehensive and accessible health care to those infected or affected by HIV/AIDS.
We will meet at Freedom Plaza (13th and Pennsylvania, NW) at the east end near the equestrian statue no later than 9:00 am. T-shirts will be given to walkers there. Nearby Metro stations are Metro Center and Federal Triangle.
