SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The 23rd annual AIDS Walk/Run to raise money for local groups that help care for about 12,000 HIV or AIDS patients in San Diego County was held Sunday morning.
Following an opening ceremony at 7:30 a.m. at Balboa Park, a 10K run was scheduled for 8 a.m. and, 15 minutes later, the walkers were set to start. Organizers, who expect around 8,000 participants, say the event is the biggest single-day fundraiser for HIV/AIDS causes in the area.
Since it began in 1989, it has raised more than $8.5 million for organizations that help patients with the disease.
The AIDS Walk/Run is sponsored by The San Diego LGBT Community Center.
