Sunrider Supports AIDS Walk Los Angeles
For the sixth consecutive year, Sunrider was a proud sponsor of AIDS Walk Los Angeles, held Sunday, October 14, on a beautiful sunshine-filled day. In addition to being the official “Sign-in Host Sponsor,” Sunrider donated 400 Kandesn® Spa Shea Butter Hand Cream samples and 400 SunBars. As in past years, Sunrider corporate staff also participated in this important fundraiser that supports AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA) and other AIDS service organizations across Los Angeles County.

This year’s 28th annual event drew a massive turnout with 30,000 participants taking part in the walk, which courses through the streets of West Hollywood and Los Angeles. Celebrity supporters, elected officials, and notable AIDS activists addressed the crowd assembled in and around West Hollywood Park before the walkers set out on the route. The event achieved strong fundraising results (over $2.9 million to date), which benefit APLA and 29 other important L.A. County AIDS service organizations. These groups provide urgently needed care to thousands of people living with HIV, as well as vital prevention work.

Sunrider has been a sponsor of AIDS Walk Los Angeles every year since 2007. In-kind donations have included SR Sports Bottles and thousands of Sunrider® products, including 3,000 sample tubes of Oi-Lin® Hand & Body Lotion Sunscreen SPF 25. Sunrider served as a “Major Sponsor” of the 2008 event for its donation of $15,000, and was recognized as the “Award Tent Sponsor” for its donation of $10,000 in 2007.

AIDS Walk LA is just one of many causes Sunrider supports throughout the year, not only in the local community, but around the globe. To learn more about AIDS Walk and how you can help, visit Aidswalk.net.
