Autumn is the season for AIDS Walks across the country. Los Angeles will hold their 26th Annual AIDS Walk in October 17, 2010. With over 30,000 walkers expected, it is one of the largest events of its kind. LA held it’s very first AIDS Walk in 1985 when 4500 walkers raised an astounding $673,000.
This year activist and entrepreneur James Hooks will be one of the many celebrities participating in the walk. Hooks founded American Credit Start and it he author of "Suicide: How Modern Black Culture is Destroying Black American Progress". Each year the event attracts celebrities from Hollywood and those from other parts of the world staying in five star hotels. Los Angeles is just the place to be, even when it comes to charity.
In 2009 AIDS Walk Los Angeles raised over 3.15 million dollars and over its 25 year history it has collected more than $66 million to fight HIV/AIDS in Los Angeles County. Nationwide, the AIDS Walk movement has raised over half a billion dollars.
The LA walk covers 10 kilometers or 6.2 miles and begins at 10 a.m. It will start and end in West Hollywood. Money raised goes to support AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA), which provides prevention education, bilingual direct services and leadership on HIV/AIDS-related legislation and policies. APLA is one of the largest non-profit service organizations in the country.
