Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is Ron Johnson Red Ribbon Day, and why is it so important right now?

Red Ribbon is a yearly fundraising and advocacy event Triad Health Project puts together to celebrate and continue our organization’s work. It comes from the great tradition of AIDS Walks that have been happening in the U.S. since the first one in Los Angeles in 1985.

Our Executive Director, Adriana Adams, often calls our attention to the consistently “unprecedented” times we’re facing– the crises we are seeing in housing, in funding, in food insecurity. We see opposition to our cause, our people, our community at every turn. The struggle to house, to feed, and to fund this work coupled with the fight for basic human dignity and rights has become such a part of our daily work that it no longer feels “unprecedented” or “new” or “urgent”. It is our every day. It is our reality.

Who is Ron Johnson?

Ron Johnson is a long-time supporter of Triad Health Project’s important work in the community. By naming the walk after Ron we are honoring those who make our work possible.

Learn more about Ron in our recent blog post and video interview!

You can register to walk with us, and order your t-shirt using our ‘2023 Red Ribbon Holiday Parade Walk Registration’ form.

When and Where will Red Ribbon Day be this year?

Our Red Ribbon Day festivities will be taking place in two parts this year.
