March 18, 2017

The LBGTQ & Allies community has a long history of standing up in the face of societal & cultural opposition to fight for our right to safety, openness, healthcare & freedom.

Come walk with us to end this disease! Register for AIDS Walk today!

Every year thousands gather in West Hollywood Park to walk to raise awareness, to help stop new infections, to educate the community, to care for friends and family affected by HIV, and to fund research for a cure.

On October 11th we will be joined by Quest Diagnostics to raise vital funds for the most underserved populations in our community.

As a premier sponsor for AIDS Walk Los Angeles, Quest Diagnostics is dedicated to helping all of the AIDS Walk community programs achieve their goals in providing HIV testing, care management and treatment. This year Quest is deepening their impact by sponsoring individual walking team like Life Group LA and we are so very very grateful!

Be sure to stop by the Quest Diagnostics booth pre- and post-event for fund activities like face/body painting and their wonderful dedication station where you can proudly let others know who you are walking in honor or memory of. Also, don’t miss out on the Quest Diagnostics scavenger hunt along the route. Here is where to find more information on the scavenger hunt.

To be a part of our wildly fun and passionate team and help us raise vital funds for our POZ Life Weekend Seminars, please choose us and register and start fundraising today.
