AIDS Walk SF Raises $2.5 Million In The Bay Area
Following our first post last week on a Bay Area charity doing great work for the community, our San Francisco Bay Area charity this week is AIDS Walk San Francisco. This local organisation holds an annual walk which raises millions of dollars, every year, to help those fighting against HIV and AIDS. In San Francisco alone, there are more than 16,000 people living with the disease.
Since 1987, AIDS Walk San Francisco has raised more than $80 million in funds fighting HIV prevention and for care programs. It is the single largest AIDS fundraising event in Northern California.
“Close to 15,000 clients will walk through the doors of the foundation to access our many services for prevention and care. Because of the dedicated participants of AIDS Walk we can continue to offer all of these services for free. As long as there is need in our community, the foundation will be here to provide support”.
– CEO of San Francisco AIDS Foundation – Neil Giuliano
In 2013 alone, the AIDS Walk event raised more than $2.5 million for people living with AIDS in the San Francisco Bay Area. You can read about the press release of the event here. Greater than 20,000 people gathered in Golden Gate Park to participate.
We wish AIDS Walk SF continued success for their annual walk, which is changing the lives of the Bay Area community and it’s residents every step of the way.
