Will you be one of the tens of thousands who will take to the streets of West Hollywood and Los Angeles for the 26th annual AIDS Walk Los Angeles (AWLA), benefiting AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA) and 20 other important AIDS service organizations throughout Los Angeles County on Sunday, October 17?
This year, the walk's newest campaign is titled, "I Walk..." which will hopefully have longtime and first-time participants contemplating a deeper meaning to why they choose to fundraise, rally, and walk.
“We are sometimes so swept up by the size and energy of the crowd that it’s easy to overlook that every one of those 30,000 dedicated participants has a personal and meaningful reason to participate,” said Craig E. Thompson, Executive Director of APLA. “When those compelling reasons turn into dollars raised for those in need who are living with HIV and AIDS, AIDS Walk Los Angeles is more than an event. It is a living movement whose success is a testament to our community’s strength and dedication to end AIDS in Los Angeles.”
