AIDS Walk Washington steps out Saturday to raise money and awareness for HIV and AIDS. News4's Doreen Gentzler has the story of one young man who said his diagnosis saved his life.
For the 27th year, walkers and runners will raise money -- and consciousness -- about people living with HIV and AIDS at the 2013 AIDS Walk Washington, held Oct. 26.
The event is a fundraising walk and 5-K race that benefits Whitman-Walker Health, a non-profit, community-based health organization which provides dependable, high-quality, comprehensive and accessible health care to those infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS.
This year, AIDS Walk Washington has a new route.
