HRC Joins 2016 Walk & 5K Run to End HIV

Earlier this month, HRC staff, interns and volunteers came together in Washington, D.C., to join the annual Walk & 5K to End HIV. Formerly known as AIDS Walk Washington, the event benefits Whitman Walker Health (WWH), a non-profit organization specializing in the care of LGBTQ people and allies, including those living with HIV.

Founded in 1978, WWH has four locations across the District that provide primary medical and dental care, addiction counseling and treatment, legal advice and many other quality of life services. A “Leader in LGBTQ Healthcare,” WWH is a longtime friend of HRC’s, working most recently with us to co-produce Safer Sex for Trans Bodies, a first-of-its-kind, sexual health resource guide for transgender people and their partners.

This year’s event was particularly special as it marked the 30th time WWH has held the event. HRC is proud to be a longtime partner of the Walk to End HIV and congratulates Whitman Walker Health on this incredible achievement.
