$5 donation class to benefit Whitman-Walker Health

2nd Sunday Donation Class for Whitman-Walker Health Sunday, September 11th at 3:30pm at Tranquil Space

It’s time to put your foot down in the fight against HIV/AIDS! On Saturday, October 29th, 2011, I will join thousands of other people in the 25th annual AIDS Walk Washington. This event is a 5K fundraising walk and timed run, benefiting and produced by Whitman-Walker Health. This year I’ll be running!

The picture is me 10 years ago in 2001 after my last Marine Corps Marathon.
I ran then to raise money and awareness for HIV/AIDS programs.

Also, I would like invite you and your friends to a donation-based yoga class at Tranquil Space to support the cause. On Sunday, September 11th at 3:30pm I will lead a 1-hour Yoga On-the-Go class in honor of the individuals this agency supports. Feel free to sign-up or just support me by clicking on this link to visit my personal web page and help me in my efforts to support Whitman-Walker Health.

As you might know I’ve worked for this agency for many years and started volunteering for them in 1997. I am always touched and moved by how people suffer alone with HIV. Whitman-Walker provides an alternative to that suffering through confidential testing, comprehensive medical, and compassionate mental health care. Please help me keep support this important cause.

Whitman-Walker Health is a nonprofit, community-based organization founded in 1973 that provides affordable, accessible and high-quality health services to the Washington metropolitan area. With the advent of the AIDS epidemic, Whitman-Walker became a leader in the fight against HIV/AIDS. In addition to medical care, Whitman-Walker’s services include HIV testing and counseling, addiction services, a day treatment center, mental health programs, legal services and an at-cost pharmacy providing HIV medication. I work in the day treatment program called the Austin Center for Health & Living, which provides comprehensive care for HIV+ adults: http://www.whitman-walker.org/page.aspx?pid=376.
