Heads Up: The Seattle AIDS Walk 2018 Is A Bit More….Picnic-ier

SeattleAIDSWalk18

Ya gotta switch things up every so often or your brand gets staler than grandma’s loaf of rye bread.

Lifelong is doing just that with this year’s Seattle AIDS Walk 2018….by adding a “Picnic” element to make it more of a family friendly/ celebratory event. Food options will be available at Volunteer Park or bring your own quiche, chicken and brie!

While the food part is fun, we also need to actually participate IN the walk…and/or donate to the walkers raising money for Lifelong, to continue their programs in support of Ending AIDS in Washington State and supporting the lives of those living with HIV/AIDS.

More info on how you can participate in this important community event:

 

Lifelong is proud to host the 32nd annual Seattle AIDS Walk & Picnic on Saturday, September 29th at Volunteer Park in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.

During the walk, we will have fun musical surprises along the way, then after we cross the finish line, we will come together for the biggest picnic that Seattle has ever seen! There will be food options available at Volunteer Park, or you can bring your own blanket and snacks. We’ll also have our famous beer and mimosa garden, and family-friendly activities for the little walkers in your life.
