On Saturday 28th November, the Sexual Health Centre will host a national virtual World AIDS Day run in conjunction with sexualwellbeing.ie, Healthy Ireland and the Health Service Executive, in a bid to tackle HIV stigma and encourage people to test regularly.
Established in 2018, the World AIDS Day run has been previously delivered in partnership with parkrun. In light of COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s run is being held ‘virtually’ so that everyone can participate in their community.
Registration is FREE, and the Sexual Health Centre will post out a free World AIDS Day dri-fit top to all participants. On 28th November, each of us will wear the dri-fit top for a walk or run to open a dialogue and address stigma in our communities.
Make sure to send a photo of yourself in the dri-fit top to the Centre by email or social media, or tag the Sexual Health Centre in any social media posts using the hashtags #WADrunIreland, #WorldAIDSday and #UequalsU.
If you can’t participate in the run, you can still join the virtual campaign by sharing the hashtags above, and order red ribbons in the form below!
