About 10,000 people took part in the 33rd annual AIDS Walk San Francisco Sunday, July 14, and raised nearly $1.5 million for PRC, Project Open Hand, the POP-UP clinic at Ward 86 at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, as well as dozens of other Bay Area HIV/AIDS service organizations. Agency representatives said they were grateful for the funds. "The joyful crowd today offers a welcome reminder that the Bay Area cares for our community and is committed to helping the critically ill," Project Open Hand CEO Paul Hepfer said in a news release. This year's amount was less than last year's reported $1.8 million.
