Date:5/22/2010

AIDS Action Committee will mark the milestone of the 25th AIDS Walk in Boston by honoring 25 leaders whose contributions to the fight against AIDS over the last two-and-a-half decades have been invaluable.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 21, 2010 -- AIDS Action Committee, Inc. (AAC), New England’s largest AIDS service organization will hold the 25th AIDS Walk Boston , Boston’s annual charity walk benefiting AAC.

Gay and bi men (35%) and injection drug users (24%) still account for the largest proportions of HIV infections in the state.

We need to have honest conversations about HIV status. We need to arm people with the tools and language that will help them stay safe. And we need to keep working to eliminate the shame and stigma that comes with an HIV/AIDS diagnosis.”

AIDS Walk Boston draws 10,000-15,000 participants; WCVB-TV StormTeam 5 meteorologist David Brown will emcee the event, which also includes a Wellness Festival and the
