The DC AIDS Walk 2009 kicks off at 9:00 this morning at 13th and Pennsylvania NW… with the pre-Walk program at 8:30 a.m. at Freedom Plaza. The annual walk benefits the Whitman-Walker Clinic and proceeds help people living with HIV-AIDS in the metro area. (Remember that WWC is our neighbor here in Borderstan.) Here is the statistic you need to know: 1 in 20 adults in DC has HIV-AIDS, an extremely high rate in the United States. Your support is needed.
Remember that you can still donate even after the Walk today. Here are two teams that asked me to post their links. So, if you have not contributed, go online now and make a donation to support Whitman-Walker Clinic and the people in the DC metro area living with HIV-AIDS.
