Held for the past 37 years, the Walk to End HIV is Whitman-Walker’s signature fundraiser that calls on thousands to strap up their shoes and walk or run to support WW’s mission of providing dependable, high-quality, comprehensive and accessible health care to those living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.
In a city where two percent of adults are known to have HIV, many more are infected but don’t know their status and young people ages 13 to 24 represent nearly 20% of new HIV diagnoses, the Walk to End HIV plays a vital role in Whitman-Walker’s mission to end the HIV epidemic in the District of Columbia. We remain committed to our long-time HIV survivors and resolute to stop new cases of HIV with health education and innovative prevention methods such as PrEP and PEP.
However, there is still much work to be done and we need you. Funds raised through the Walk to End HIV help us to expand support services, increase access and create new methods of connecting to our most at-risk populations. By registering and fundraising you can help us to fight stigma and save lives.
