California: AIDS Walk Raises $3.8 Million

July 21, 2006

Twenty-five thousand people attended the 20th annual AIDS Walk through Golden Gate Park on Sunday, July 16, and raised $3.8 million. Organizers said that was an increase of $150,000 over last year's walk. The funds go to the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and 43 other Bay Area AIDS agencies. The organizations receiving the money are involved in providing housing assistance for HIV/AIDS patients, treatment access, prevention campaigns, nutrition programs, advocacy and legal support. "Twenty years ago we mobilized public support for the work of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and started a grassroots movement which has turned into California's largest AIDS fundraising event," said Craig R. Miller, who founded the walk in 1987.
