On Sunday, the 25th annual AIDS Walk Los Angeles is expected to draw more than 27,000 participants. Last year, the walk raised $3.9 million and attracted 30,000 people. Since 1985, the event has helped raise more than $63 million for HIV/AIDS programs across the county. This year's beneficiaries are AIDS Project Los Angeles and more than a dozen other AIDS service organizations in the region. Registration on Sunday starts at 8:30 a.m. for the 10 a.m. kick off, and the 10K walk begins and ends in West Hollywood Park at the corner of Melrose Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard.
