This year marks the 30th annual AIDS Walk Los Angeles, the world’s first walk to fight the epidemic. The event will raise vital funds for AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA) and more than 20 other L.A. County AIDS service organizations.
The event continues to keep the public engaged with the HIV/AIDS crisis through community-driven outreach, a strong social media presence, and, as always, a compelling street campaign.
AIDS Walk Los Angeles is one of the biggest, most diverse, and highly anticipated annual events in Los Angeles. Last year, a passionate crowd of 25,000 walkers and 2,500 volunteers raised more than $2.5 million for HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, and advocacy programs. Since its inception, the event has raised more than $76 million to fight the disease in Los Angeles County, and the AIDS Walk movement has raised more than a half-billion dollars nationwide.
