IPTC INFO
CaptionIn 1987 the first AIDS Walk San Francisco was an extraordinary and much needed success that also helped shatter the silence. More than 6 000 compassionate Bay Area residents raised an astounding $667 000. At a time when the nation was inattentive to the looming crisis these courageous walkers brought their message visibly to the streets: "We are here to fight AIDS!" The money raised at that event and the annual AIDS Walks that have followed has enabled SFAF to continue its critical work and provide services to more than 100 000 men women and children living with HIV/AIDS and their families. A portion of the AIDS Walk proceeds also go to dozens of other important AIDS organization within the Bay Area. Over the years more and more members of the Bay Area community have participated in the event. They have raised a total of $60 million to help people with HIV and AIDS; to educate the community about HIV and prevent its spread; and to lobby the government to increase its support of HIV care prevention and the search for a cure."
