The 2017 AIDS Walk Los Angeles will take place on Sunday, October 15, 2017 For more than 25 years, AULA has participated in this important fundraising event. Turn your compassion into action by joining team Antioch Walks! Help us raise funds for service organizations dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by HIV and AIDS.
“I have proudly served as the captain of the Antioch team since the first time we participated,” says Joy Turek, Chair, Psychology Department and Captain, Antioch Team, AIDS Walk Los Angeles 2017. “We’ve managed to make it to the top 10 teams several times, despite being a smaller institution than most. We’ve walked our talk and, by so doing, had an impact on the lives of people living with HIV and AIDS. Take your activism to the streets! Join me and other faculty, staff, administrators and students who want to make a difference.”
AIDS Walk Los Angeles 2017 will start and end at the steps of L.A. City Hall and adjacent Downtown parkland. All walkers will receive a t-shirt with the Antioch Walks team name on it. The walk is a 10K —just over six miles—and completed at a comfortable pace usually takes until about noon.
Walkers are strongly encouraged to ask people they know to donate in support of their walking. Those who are unable to walk are encouraged to participate by sponsoring a walker or the Antioch Walks Team. Walkers are welcome to walk even if they don’t collect any money.
“We hope to his year we hope to have our biggest team to date and raise $10,000! I hope you will help us achieve this goal,” added Turek.
Since 1985, AIDS Walk Los Angeles has drawn over a half-million participants who have collectively raised nearly $82 million. The event serves as a model of grassroots fundraising and community activism for organizations across the United States.
