Guild Members Walk to Fight AIDS
Although it rained on Sunday, October 17, the day of the 20th annual Los Angeles AIDS Walk, nothing could dampen the spirits of the Editors Guild AIDS Walk team, under the leadership of team leader and Guild Board member Maggie Ostroff.

Eleven Guild members raised money and walked more than six miles through West Los Angeles, while 12 others also raised funds. Editors Guild team t-shirts were generously donated by the loop group LA Mad Dogs.

More than 25,000 people in all participated in the 10k walk, raising over $3 million for AIDS and HIV programs in Los Angeles.
