California: Thousands Join AIDS Walk in San Francisco

July 22, 2013

More than 25,000 participants raised over $2.5 million in the 10-kilometer AIDS Walk San Francisco on July 21. More than 700 teams participated and Gap Inc., a top fundraising team, raised over $70,000. Since the walk began 26 years ago, it has raised $80 million. The walk benefits the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, which distributes funds among Bay Area groups that provide services such as free HIV screenings, sterile needle exchange, and healthcare for people with HIV/AIDS. A Kaiser Family Foundation 2013 report indicated that in 2011, California reported more HIV diagnoses than any other state and that HIV infection among gay and bisexual men was still increasing nationally.
