Almost 20,000 people turned out for Sunday’s AIDS Walk San Francisco in Golden Gate Park, raising a total of $2.7 million. The walk’s organizer, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, distributes the money to Bay Area groups that provide housing, support, and health care services for people with HIV/AIDS. More than 850 corporate teams took part; one of the top fundraisers was Gap Inc., which donated more than $100,000. US Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), who co-chairs the Congressional HIV/AIDS Caucus, told walkers that minority groups now see the highest infection rates in the United States. During its 26-year history, the walk has raised more than $77 million.
