Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, and other celebrities, elected leaders, and thousands of other caring people united to raise funds for critically needed HIV/AIDS services and prevention programs.
In its 31 years, AIDS Walk Los Angeles has drawn hundreds of thousands of supporters to walk, and millions more to donate, raising more than $82 million to combat HIV and AIDS. The funds raised at the event remain a vital lifeline that sustains APLA Health’s prevention, care, and advocacy programs for the thousands of men, women, and families affected by the disease in Los Angeles County. Proceeds also benefit more than 20 other HIV/AIDS service organizations that are able to participate and raise funds through the Community Coalition Initiative (CCI).
