California: AIDS Walk Los Angeles Breaks Records

October 16, 2006

A record 30,000 people turned out for Sunday's 10th annual AIDS Walk Los Angeles, raising an estimated $3.8 million, said organizers. "Americans are waking up to the scope and depth of this epidemic," said Craig Thompson, executive director of AIDS Project Los Angeles, which receives money from the event. The 6.2-mile walk through West Hollywood bested last year's turnout by some 4,000 participants and raised almost $400,000 more than the previous record set in 1996. "We are thrilled," said event founder Craig Miller. "We are going to be able to help a lot of people with this money."
