Celebrating your health and wellness through the season

You are invited to join Triad Health Project in partnership with the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department to a special series of events and activities that elevate care conversations about love and whole body health. Through independent tours of our city's rich and vital parks to interactive engagements with our many diverse communities, we are championing health equity and combatting stigma together.

Ron Johnson Red Ribbon Week is a chance for the community to come out to 5 featured Greensboro parks to participate in personal 5Ks (walk or run) to support Triad Health Project’s work.

5 Parks, 5 Wellness Walks

Triad Health Project and Greensboro Parks and Recreation share the core values of Health and Equity. As separate entities, we are working in our own ways to promote healthier habits for the members of our community and remove barriers to health and increase access for all our community members. Join us as we explore those themes on five curated Wellness Walks throughout Greensboro Parks.

Walks With Wellness

At work, a man living with HIV started finding Clorox wipes and other cleaning supplies around his work space when he informed co-workers about his HIV status.

A long-term survivor of HIV was too afraid to touch his mother as she was dying because the stigma around HIV made him feel as though he was a dangerous person, as though he was a threat. He believed he was a monster and that he was not good enough to help his mother as she was dying.

A woman of color at Higher Ground often expresses frustration over women with HIV being constantly sexualized (and hyper-sexualized) by the public.

Stop & Shop

Keep your summer to stop STIgma going all year around with a t-shirt that tells the world you may be fun…but you aren’t playing around with STIgma.

In partnership with Bonfire, you can choose from five colorful prints across a wide array of shirts and tank-tops for all gender identities and expressions.

Together, we celebrate wellness!

Share your time at events, in our office, or at Higher Ground and connect to the community.

Join the walk and reserve your shirt! Celebrate all year long by picking up a shirt for you and your friends!

Show your support—financial or food—to make a future free from HIV.
