California: Fight Against AIDS a Family Affair

April 30, 2012

The AIDS Services Foundation's AIDS Walk is set for Sunday, May 6 at Disneyland. Organizers are hoping 6,000 to 7,000 people take part in the walk, after which participants can get a 30 percent discount on park tickets. Among those walking will be Pearl Jemison-Smith, who returns as co-chair after serving in that capacity at the Orange County AIDS Walk 26 years ago, and her granddaughter Ashley Jemison, an ASF volunteer who talks to high-school students about how to avoid HIV, STDs, and unwanted pregnancy.
