Organizers in Washington, D.C., say they expect about 10,000 participants for Saturday's 27th annual Aids Walk Washington. The 5K walk and run, which benefits 14 HIV/AIDS service providers, including Whitman-Walker Health, takes place less than a month after health officials found that 2.4% of the city's residents are HIV-positive. A number of local politicians are expected to take part in the event, including Eleanor Holmes Norton, a nonvoting delegate to the House, and Mayor Vincent Gray.
