Description
Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a disease caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which attacks certain of the body's cells and makes it extremely difficult to fight other infections and diseases. Beginning in 1981, the AIDS pandemic and crisis began, with large numbers of gay men across the country showing symptoms of the disease. Throughout the next decade, more and more individuals contracted the disease and medical professionals worked on finding effective medicines to cure and fight the disease. In solidarity for those who are fighting the disease, and to raise money and awareness, many AIDS Walks have been organized across the country. Additional text includes: "Fill Our Streets with Hope" -- The Walkline 202-797-4408.
