Since 1985, AIDS Walk Los Angeles has raised $59 million for HIV programs and services in Los Angeles County, and has grown into the largest AIDS fundraising event in California. In 2007 alone, 30,000 participants, many of whom were members of 1,400 corporate and community teams, raised a record sum of more than $3.9 million for AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA) and other local AIDS service organizations. This year’s event will take place on October 19.
