AIDS Walk Los Angeles has, over its history, drawn more than a half-million participants who have collectively raised nearly $75 million. Participants can register online.

Why did not you post signs in advance on ALL the street closures except for the ONE on San Vicente & Santa Monica?…. It would have too convenient for all of us living in West Hollywood Hills!
Thanks for caring!!!
