25 Years of AIDS Walks… |SF CA

by Accidental Bear

…and counting!

Members of the San Francisco State University geography department and members of St. Francis Lutheran Church were just a few of the estimated 25,000 walkers who participated in the 25th annual AIDS Walk San Francisco Sunday, July 17 in Golden Gate Park. The San Francisco AIDS Foundation, which organizes the event, said that the AIDS Walk raised more than $3 million for the foundation and 48 other Bay Area HIV/AIDS agencies. The opening ceremonies featured Judy Kaye, from Tales of the City , who sang “You’ll Never Walk Alone” to energize walkers as they set out on the 6.2-mile (10k) route. (B.A.R.)
