Triad Health Project wants to keep our community safe!
Instead of hosting our traditional Ron Johnson Red Ribbon Run/Walk, we're thinking smart and socially distant by offering you, your family, your co-workers (and anyone else your can gather) a whole WEEK and 5 WONDERFUL Greensboro Parks and Rec facilities to explore.
Register yourself as an individual or create a team and join Triad Health Project on the week of November 14-21 at ANY of the 5 parks above at ANY time convenient to you! Run, walk, skip, jump-rope....participate in a 5k, or the distance you are able, and be a part of a movement to keep our community healthier!
You, your friends, and your family are vital to our mission at Triad Health Project. Through a commitment to Care and Justice, we can transform the future of our diverse community, connect everyone to quality health and wellness services, reduce the transmission and impact of sexually transmitted infections and realize the vision of a future free from HIV.
We have a goal to raise $250,000 during this event- won't you help us?
Sign up to run!
