AIDS Walk San Francisco Boosts Number of Teams and Benefiting Agencies
Date:7/2/2008

Enthusiasm for event grows in the face of widespread budget cuts for Bay

Area HIV/AIDS service organizations.

SAN FRANCISCO, July 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The San Francisco AIDS Foundation and AIDS Walk San Francisco announced today that the number of Bay Area HIV/AIDS service organizations benefiting from the 22nd annual AIDS Walk in Golden Gate Park, July 20th, will expand from 42 to more than 50, and the Community Partnership Program (CPP) teams will nearly double from 15 to 28.

"AIDS Walk San Francisco has never been so important," said Mark Cloutier, Chief Executive Officer of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. He cited the fact that more people in the Bay Area are living with HIV than ever before, including nearly 19,000 in San Francisco alone. Nonetheless, almost all local AIDS service organizations are facing cuts in government funding at all levels.

Last year, AIDS Walk San Francisco's more than 25,000 participants raised a record $4.6 million in support of the Foundation and other Bay Area HIV/AIDS service organizations. The CPP Program was launched in 2005 as a means of increasing the reach of AIDS Walk proceeds throughout the Bay Area counties. The program has been growing each year.

"The San Francisco AIDS Foundation's continued expansion of the CPP program is a testament to the agency's leadership and proof of its mission," said Craig R. Miller, President of MZA Events and Founder and Producer of AIDS Walk San Francisco. "With budget cuts looming and a challenging economy, expanding the scope of the AIDS Walk and sharing the fundraising engine forged through 22 years of success is a great opportunity for the entire Bay Area HIV/AIDS community."

"This year, walkers can support more of these deserving agencies than ever. And by joining a Community Partnership Program team, participants can protect the services they care about most," Cloutier said. "CPP makes their walk even more meaningful."
