The 26th Annual AIDS Walk will take place on Saturday, October 27. The 5K walk and run raises funds for Whitman-Walker Health, a community-based nonprofit health organization that provides care to those infected with, or affected by, HIV/AIDS. Every year, thousands of participants show up for the walk with the overall goal of raising $1 million for the cause.

AIDS Walk Washington will begin and end at Freedom Plaza (Pennsylvania Avenue and 13th Street NW). The closest Metro stations are Federal Triangle (Blue/Orange lines) and Metro Center (Blue/Orange/Red lines).

The walk starts promptly at 8:30 am, but pre-race activities (including same day registration, speakers and warm-up exercises) begin at 7 am.  After the walk is complete, participants are invited to stay for live music and post-race celebrations.

Those interested in walking and/or running, volunteering or making a general donation can register online. General walk registration is $25.
