37th annual Walk to End HIV
Most of you know the story of my dad’s death after he was diagnosed with AIDS. Stigma, health inequity, shame, and limited access to care in PR were contributing factors to his death. I honor my dad’s life in different ways including participating in Whitman-Walker's Walk to End HIV on Saturday, October 21. This year has special meaning as the walk will be in Ward 8 where we will be opening our new Max Robinson Center in 2023.
For nearly 50 years, Whitman-Walker has been part of the DC community as a first responder for those living with HIV and a leader in LGBTQ+ care and advocacy. Today, WWH cares for more folks living with HIV (over 3500) than any other health care provider in the city and conducts more than 6,000 HIV tests per year.
I’m asking for your support once again. A gift of any amount will help me reach my fundraising goal of $1,000 for the critical HIV programs and services of Whitman-Walker Health. I'm so excited that this year we return to an in-person event and get to come together as a community once again. The generosity you show through your donation, helps us to do our job. Your donation will go toward lifesaving services that Whitman-Walker Health provides for thousands of folx in our area living with HIV—regardless of their ability to pay. And you will help fund critical prevention outreach and treatment programs that can help end HIV in DC.
Whitman-Walker has always been a first responder to public health challenges facing our community - from AIDS to COVID and now Monkeypox. And I am constantly amazed at the resiliency of my colleagues and my workplace and the creativity, energy and compassion they bring to any challenge.
I am blessed to have Whitman-Walker as my workplace for 13 years.

Thank you, as always, for your support!
