We participated in the DC AIDS Walk 2008 this past Saturday… it was a gloriously beautiful Fall day. The starting and ending point was Freedom Plaza at 14th and Pennsylvania NW.

The Walk benefits Whitman-Walker Clinic and people living with HIV/AIDS in the DC Metro area. Donations through the Walk are being accepted through the end of 2008 — you can donate online right here.

Here are a couple of photos courtesy of One Photograph A Day. (Full disclosure: this photo blogger is my partner.)
