Kingdom Pride in Kerry returns this July 10th – 16th for a full week of activities across the county!
On Saturday 26th of November, the Sexual Health Centre will host a 5k fun run or 5K walk for World AIDS Day in conjunction with the HSE Sexual Health and Crisis Pregnancy Programme and parkrun, in a bid to tackle HIV stigma and encourage people to test regularly. Established in 2018, the World AIDS Day run has gone from strength to strength and expanded beyond Cork county, improving people’s understanding of HIV and awareness of services across Ireland.
9.30am, Saturday 26th of November 2022 in Tralee Town Park
Registration is FREE.
Those who don’t have access to a device or internet can call us on 021-4276676 and our team will complete the registration form over the phone.

Thinking of reusing your #WADrun top from last year’s run?
→ Let us know, so that we can add you to our participant tally, and why not sign up a friend?
→ You can help us spread the word online before the event, asking your friends to become ‘Ambassadors Against HIV Stigma’.
On 26th of November, each of us will wear the dri-fit top for a walk or run to open a dialogue and address stigma in our communities. Make sure to send a photo of yourself in the dri-fit top to the Centre by email or social media, or tag the Sexual Health Centre in any social media posts using the hashtags #WADrunIreland, #WorldAIDSday and #UequalsU. Photos can be sent to email@example.com, Twitter (@shc_cork), Instagram (@shc_cork) and Facebook (@besexystayhealthy).
