AIDS Walk’s afoot in WeHo
October 10, 2012
The 28th Annual AIDS Walk Los Angeles will fill the streets of West Hollywood with more than 30,000 supporters this Sunday. Celebrities and local officials will be among those hitting the pavement to add to the more than $72 million the event has raised since 1985.
The walk has been shortened this year to accommodate the space shuttle Endeavour, which is making its way to its new retirement home at the California Science Center. Nevertheless, some streets will be closing for the event. Starting at 6 a.m. on Sunday, sections of La Peer Drive and Melrose Avenue will close, as will parts of Robertson, Santa Monica, San Vicente, Beverly and Fairfax. To allow for set-up, San Vicente will also close between Santa Monica and Melrose at 6 a.m. on Saturday and from Santa Monica to Cynthia Street at 12 a.m. on Sunday morning. All roads will reopen when it’s safe to do so. Click here to see a map of the walk’s route.
