R4H weekend blasts off with Heretic hunks

As Atlanta AIDS Walk approaches, the Ready 4 Hope guys kick into high gear. R4H Weekend is the culmination of year-round fundraising in a three-day series of non-stop parties with purpose.

The fun began on Friday, when visiting beefcake DJ Luis Perez turned the Heretic dance floor into a thumping, undulating sea of hunks. Red-shirted R4H guys ushered the Weigh-In Party patrons through the weekend’s first boxing themed event – they want to “knock out HIV,” after all.

The Friday Weigh-In led directly into the Warmup Afterhours Party at Xion for an all-nighter with DJ Karlitos for those who just couldn’t wait for Saturday’s main events. And you thought summer's R4H pool party was massive.
