9:03 am
that is not changing anything in terms of the spirit and the money being raised and all the good being done because of aids walk san now in 34th year in san francisco. i've been proud to be part of this event for the last 26 years. this year, of course, because of the pandemic, it's a virtual aids walk. and we have just a handful of people. we're associatinsocial distancie our pacifmasks. everything is safe and everything is exciting too. my dear friend, founder of aids walk, craig miller is here, who brought this to san francisco 34 years ago. craig, different this year, we've never had an aids walk like it. >> it's very different this year. i'm proud a few things are the same, dan ashley is with us, abc 7 is with us. it would not be july in san francisco without a gathering in support of coplehe sve as walk san francisco remains key to this community's fight against
9:04 am
hiv. >> reporter: it sure does. we'll talk about the beneficiaries in a moment, but walk me through how different this aids walk is in terms of planning. obviously we don't have the giant stage, we don't have hundreds of volunteers, we don't have thousands of people here. but the event has taken months to plan, and virtual planning has been huge. we have some terrific stars as we always do. they're just not here in the park this year. walk us through how this year has been different for you from a planning perspective. >> we started off thinking it may be practical and feasible and safe to gather in person, in golden gate park. but as the months wore on, it became evident that that would not be the case. so aids walk san francisco has long been blessed to have the participants of a lot of important leaders and high profile celebrities and entertainers, this year even more, because so many people who would want to be h but c'tnessia
9:05 am
suay morning, people like bette midler and gloria estefan, are joining us from their homes to help make today a great success. >> reporter: and it's going to be a huge success, aids walk san francisco officially kicks off on abc 7 at 10:00 today, a starred-studded event. i suspect some people, craig, will get out and walk today nonetheless. >> for anyone who has a safe environment and for whom it's safe to walk, people will be taking their own walks today. but you and i and a few other top aids walk san francisco participants are here in the park to symbolically represent the tens of thousands of people that would normaly be here. but we are so blessed that even in these difficult times, so many people have taken it upon themselves to register for this event at and to look forward to viewing it and participating and perhaps donating online during the live telecast coming up on abc7.
9:06 am
>> and one of the things that i am so proud of as abc 7 has participated, as the media sponsor of this event, is every year when i get up onstage and i look out at 20,000 people and you feel this incredible sense of commitment and love to this cause, this community, and the people who need the support of aids walk san francisco, 20 beneficiaries or so every year, i'm so proud of what this city does. and that isn't changing just because we can't look out and see the 20,000 people. they're still there, they'll just be with us online this year. >> that is exactly right, dan. just as you are still with us, both physically in the park and as an active participant and fundraiser, so are thousands of others. so it's a virtual gathering this year. but the spirit remains the same. the commitment remains the same. the entertainment quality probably a little higher than usual, making up for only us being in the park today instead
9:07 am
of everyone. >> reporter: craig, before we go, prc as a primary beneficiary. talk a little bit about prc and the other beneficiaries and why it's so important. >> prc, poh, aidsh, aidsh, in all eight bay area counties, their work remains vital. and those that are at high risk for hiv are also at high risk for covid. those that are facing homelessness face an acute challenge from these dual public health emergencies. and once again, the people of the bay area are rallying together in a different format but for the same purpose, uplifting those who need our help. >> reporter: craig, thank you very much. craig miller, founder of aids walk san francisco. he started this in this city 34 years ago and we've raised over those years tens of millions of dollars to support hiv and aids organizations throughout the bay area. that will happen again this

home. so it's a different year in our 34th year of aids walk. but it's the same in terms of the enthusiasm, the energy, and what we're going to do which is raise a lot of money for aids walk and hiv programs throughout the city. i'm joined by craig miller who started all of this 34 years ago in san francisco, craig, it's different but we're excited about it. >> good morning, dan, it is different, but the part that remains the same is the commitment to support prc and all the organizations that benefit from this year's aids walk san francisco. the response has been tremendous. we're here to represent the tens of thousands that would normally be standing here but are safe at home, ready to watch aids walk live at home on abc 7 news coming up at 10:00. >> reporter: craig, thanks very much. it is a star-studded event. we always have great entertainment but this year because it's live at home we've got bette midler, gloria estefan and so many others coming up at 10:00 on aids walk san francisc
9:32 am
ve res cente i s francisco, the primary beneficiary of aids walk this year. and a very dear friend of mine, brett andrews who i've known for many years, is the executive director of prc. brett, it's exciting. tell us a little bit about what prc does. >> sure. you know, prc, like many aids service organizations, came in response to hiv. and over the years we've grown our palms. we do legal advocacy, employment services, emergency financial assistance. and most recently we've expanded into behavioral health. so we do residential treatment care, mental health treatment care around the city. >> reporter: the work you're doing, it's really one of those rubber meets the road are struggng with aids,hi and ancillary issues that come as a result that have. it's not just battling the disease, there's a whole set of circumstances that people have to face as a result.
9:33 am
so what you're able to do really is make a huge difference and the money generated today really helps you. >> that's right. what i think about, particularly today, in all of the issues that we're dealing with in society, there's such an intersectionality. when we're raising money for aids walk and we're raising money for prc, we're also raising money for transphobia and homophobia and poverty and homelessness. the intersectionality is really the ways in which we can address the whole individual. so we're really excited about what we're doing here today. >> reporter: and brett, this is my aids walk san francisco, 34 years it's been in existence, and abc 7 news has been such a proud sponsor from the beginning. we have seen some enormous positive change in terms of the fight against this pandemic over the years. and there can be a problem of becoming complacent because we've made so much progress but
9:34 am
we can't really afford that, can question? >> that'n't. well or medical advancements we've had and certainly with prep as a prevention strategy. but it's still an epidemic, it's still a pandemic. when we think of communities of color and our homeless population, we have to make sure we're addressing their needs as we are the general population. we're thrilled we've had under 200 new infections in san francisco but we also know there's so much more work to be done particularly in our cultural communities. >> reporter: what a wonderful chtis, though, 200 infections is still 200 too many but what a sea change from just a few years ago when this was just ravaging our community. prc is the prima but there are so many other beneficiaries. talk about the work that's being done around aids and hiv in this community through this aids walk event. >> sure. i'm pleased that we are the primary beneficiary this year
9:35 am
but so many extraordinary programs that we partner with throughout the city, project open hand providing food and nutritious meals to seniors and people with disabilities, aids legal referral panel who is just extraordinary work around eviction prevention and eviction defense. i'm thinking of aids memorial grove where we come and honor and recognize the past and reflect on what we've been through and also use it as a source of strength and encouragement to go forward with the work that we need to do. just to name a few. >> reporter: brett, thank you very much, congratulations on all the amazing work that you and prc is doing. and i know -- >> thank you, dan, for your work for so many years, and abc 7 news, you're a true community partner and we appreciate it. >> reporter: you're a dear friend, brett, thank you very much. the challenge for all of us,
9:36 am
great friends, we can't shake each other's hands, we can't hug each other. just because it's different this year doesn't mean it's any less special, meaningful, and impactful. that's what it's going to be, liz. aids walk live at home starts at 10:00 right here on abc. please get involved if you can, make a donation. help support all of these great organizations like prc that been from aids walk san francisco. it's a little, you know, not crowded out here, as it usually is, but it's a lot of fun nonetheless and we're going to make a huge difference this ne this pandemic, we really can come together virtually in ways we never thought we could, so we'll definitely be with you at 10:00. thank you. catch aids walk live at home at 10:00 a.m., a star-studded event featuring bette midler, gloria estefan, alan cumming, and so much more. visit to donate.
