California: Walgreens Stores Raise $15,000 for AIDS Walk

November 1, 2010

The 23rd annual AIDS Walk and 5K Run in Palm Springs on Oct. 23 attracted about 1,000 participants and took in $226,000 for the Desert AIDS Project. Included in that total was $15,000 raised by employees in Walgreens' local 28-store district. "Walgreens has three specialty stores that work with HIV, so they see the need," said Josie Diaz, a patient-advocate at one of the chain's Cathedral City stores. "The pharmacists see the impact when funding is cut." Having first committed to raising $5,000, the employees boosted their goal to $10,000, and finally to $15,000.
