GMHC & AIDS Walk San Francisco

By Charlotte Robinson, July 13, 2018
In San Francisco on Sunday July 15th thousands of people are expected to gather in Golden Gate Park for the 32nd annual AIDS Walk San Francisco (AWSF) both in support of people living with HIV/AIDS & to defend the dignity & equality of vulnerable populations everywhere. This is the first year that the NYC org GMHC is the main organizer of the San Francisco AIDS Walk following its merger with ACRIA last year. The 10-kilometer Walk begins & ends in Golden Gate Park. Celebrities at the Opening Ceremony in Robin Williams Meadow will include Barrett Foa (NCIS Los Angeles), Nico Tortorella (Younger), Dale Soules (Orange is the New Black), ABC-7 news anchor Dan Ashley, and more. A Post-Walk Show also in Robin Williams Meadow will be held for all participants & will be co-hosted by Nico Tortorella, fitness celebrity Bethany Meyers & RuPaul’s Drag Race star Alexis Michelle. Since 1987 AWSF has raised more than $90 million for a variety of Bay Area HIV/AIDS care, prevention services & advocacy organizations & has long been Northern California’s largest AIDS fundraising event. This year’s Walk benefits ACRIA, PRC & Project Open Hand, as well as dozens of other Bay Area HIV/AIDS service organizations. ACRIA envisions a world where all people with HIV receive the treatment, care & support they need to lead healthy, productive lives & where new transmissions of the virus have been eliminated. Positive Resource Center (PRC) helps people affected by HIV/AIDS, substance use, or mental health issues better realize opportunities by providing integrated legal, social & health services that address the broad range of social risk factors that impact wellness & limit potential. Project Open Hand’s mission is to nourish & engage our community by providing meals with love to the sick & the elderly.
