AIDS Walk Los Angeles

October 10, 2010

On Sunday, October 17, 30,000 walkers will take to the streets of West Hollywood and Los Angeles for the 26th annual AIDS Walk Los Angeles to show their support for people living with HIV/AIDS. Money raised through this family-friendly event – which will feature words of inspiration from celebrity guests, musical performances and an exciting 10-kilometer route – will benefit AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA) and 20 other critically important AIDS service organizations throughout Los Angeles County.

“AIDS Walk Los Angeles is more than an event, and more than a walk-a-thon. It is a living movement whose success is a testament to our community’s strength and dedication,” said Craig E. Thompson, Executive Director of APLA. Indeed, over the past 25 years, AIDS Walk Los Angeles has made it possible for APLA and dozens of other organizations to provide life-sustaining food, medical and dental care, safe housing, and much more for thousands of Angelenos living with HIV/AIDS. The event also helps support APLA in running L.A. County’s largest network of effective and unbiased HIV prevention programs, saving countless lives.

To date, AIDS Walk Los Angeles has raised more than $66 million for APLA and dozens of other important local AIDS organizations. Register today! Visit aidswalk.net or call (213) 201-WALK (9255).
