California: AIDS Walk Is 25
October 19, 2009
Sunday's 25th annual AIDS Walk Los Angeles drew some 30,000 people who walked a 6.2-mile route in West Hollywood and raised $3,146,206 for AIDS Project Los Angeles and other AIDS service organizations. Craig E. Thompson, APLA's executive director, said the funds are especially needed this year because the organization lost $1.6 million as the result of state budget cuts.
