On Sunday, October 15, AIDS Walk Los Angeles returns to West Hollywood Park to raise funds to fight HIV and AIDS.
ABC7 is a proud sponsor of the event.
The purpose of the walk is to raise funds and create support and awareness for HIV/AIDS. Funds raised through this event will benefit the organization APLA Health and other HIV/AIDS organizations in Los Angeles County.
Since 1985, the AIDS Walk Los Angeles has attracted hundreds of thousands of supporters to walk and millions more to donate, raising more than $92 million.

“Our passion and energy for change remain as strong today as they were at the very first AIDS Walk Los Angeles,” said Craig E. Thompson, CEO of APLA Health. “Only now are we seeing a world where attention is diverted elsewhere, where health rights are threatened at the highest levels, and where access to quality health care is not guaranteed for all.”
Thompson continued, “For 40 years, APLA Health has been committed to improving access to health care, providing resources to underserved communities and engaging in HIV advocacy. Unfortunately, there is significant progress to be made in the fight for healthcare justice.”
