Winter Walk for AIDS
The 23rd Annual Winter Walk for AIDS is a one-mile walk / 5K Run that raises vital funding for Triad Health Project's direct client services and prevention education programs.
After 22 years, we are adding our first official 5K run to this year’s Winter Walk, named in honor of Ron Johnson!
Ron Johnson is a Partner in the law firm of Johnson, Peddrick & McDonald, PLLC in Greensboro, NC. His practice area is Estate Planning, Estate Administration, Business Law, and Nonprofit Corporations.
A past president of the THP Board of Directors, and longtime THP supporter and advocate, Ron has consistently been the single largest individual fundraiser for the Winter Walk for AIDS for 21 consecutive years, raising a total upwards of $400,000.
Ron’s heartfelt and inspiring commitment to THP honors his promise to the late “Mrs. Leon”, Aileen Oldham, founder of Leon’s Style Salons and Beauty School, that he would carry on her legacy as the top fundraiser for the Winter Walk for AIDS.
The event will begin outside the Elliott University Center on the campus of UNCG. Runners will register to run in the timed 5K event and walkers will follow the runners in a 1 mile stroll through campus. Stay tuned for more information!
