Massachusetts: 12,000 Walkers Hit the Road for AIDS

June 9, 2009

Sunday's AIDS Walk Boston drew some 12,000 people to a 6.2-mile course along the Charles River Esplanade and the Back Bay. Launched 24 years ago, the walk has raised about $35 million for HIV/AIDS prevention and services. The fundraising goal for this year's event was $1.1 million. "A lot of people don't realize that in the United States AIDS has not gone away," said Paul Twitchell of the AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts. "It is still a problem."
