For five plus years, the New York Film Academy Los Angeles has been sending teams to the LA AIDS Walk. And since Hollywood loves franchises, we did it again!
Starting in 1985, AIDS Walk Los Angeles has benefited AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA), an organization dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by HIV disease. Their goal is to reduce the incidence of HIV infection and advocating for fair and effective HIV-related public policy.
Actor Peter Gallagher (“The OC,” “American Beauty”) and Mayor Eric Garrett sent the 10,000 walkers off in style through the streets of Downtown LA. Unlike last year’s surface-of-the-sun level heat wave, the weather cooperated and even some clouds helped shield our speedy NYFA Walkers. With our trusted unofficial mascot, Gambit, by our side, the team made it all 10 KM in record time (for us).
Once again, New York Film Academy is among the top fundraising universities… and can rise even further with your help!
Our team is still accepting donations for this important cause at: http://la.aidswalk.net/nyfa The deadline is November 15 — in order to be counted for this year’s total.
