Sunday's 26th annual AIDS Walk New York drew about 45,000 participants and raised more than $6 million, organizers said. The event, held in Central Park and the Upper West Side, benefits Gay Men's Health Crisis and 41 other HIV/AIDS service groups in the tri-state area. At the walk, US Rep. Anthony Weiner and New York Assembly member Richard Gottfried called on the Food and Drug Administration to approve the sale of over-the-counter rapid-result HIV test kits.
