Make a Difference: China AIDS Walk 2012
An concept that first started in Los Angeles in 1985, the HIV/AIDS Walk was created to reduce stigma & discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS, and to raise money for social projects related to HIV/AIDS. All participants who have walked this walk in cities all over the world are encouraged to raise funds themselves for designated AIDS service and/or advocacy organizations, collecting pledges from their friends, family and colleagues, spreading awareness virally through personal networks and communities.
The China AIDS Walk is an annual event that takes the initiative to China and the funds raised will benefit people living with HIV/AIDS with medical needs & anti-discrimination initiatives all over China
