Tens Of Thousands Participate In AIDS Walk New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — As more than 30,000 people walked through Central Park on Sunday in support of those living with HIV and AIDS, organizers said the end of the AIDS epidemic is in sight.

The 29th annual AIDS Walk New York, held Sunday morning, is expected to raise more than $3 million for 40 organizations offering housing, medication and clothes to people living with AIDS and HIV, as well as educating young people about safe sex.

“We are really on the cusp of ending the epidemic proportions of HIV,” Janet Weinberg, interim chief executive officer of Gay Men’s Health Crisis, told CBS 2′s Vanessa Murdock. “We can do that now. We have new tools.”
