It’s time to BRING IT to downtown LA on July 15, 2012. Concrete Hero is the ultimate urban obstacle challenge benefiting, AIDS Project Los Angeles. Join thousands of fellow Angelenos for a unique obstacle adventure through the city streets, united for one common goal - to support life-saving services for people living with HIV/AIDS.
Proceeds from Concrete Hero support APLA’s on the ground work for more than 10,000 clients in Los Angeles: giving out thousands of bags of free groceries to those who face HIV and hunger; finding safe shelter for those who are ill and homeless; restoring smiles for those who have suffered from painful oral health problems related to their HIV, and so much more. More than 3,100 people stream into APLA’s HIV prevention, education, and testing programs around the county initiatives. These initiatives focus on youth, people of color, and others who are at highest risk of infection but often lack access to the services they need to stay healthy and negative. And, from City Hall to the U.S. Capitol, APLA fights hard to protect and defend government programs depended on by all Angelenos affected by HIV.
