KTVU: World AIDS Day Observed in Golden Gate Park

AIDS Memorial Grove in Golden Gate Park

(Dec. 1, 2014)— The San Francisco Bay Area marked the 26th annual World AIDS Day with memorials, free HIV testing sites, and candlelight vigils on Monday. Decades after the Centers for Disease Control first named HIV/AIDS in 1982, the human toll is clearly marked in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park at the National Aids Memorial Grove. The annual service drew a crowd of people to the grove Monday afternoon. Organizers rang a bell for each person remembered, names etched in stone at the memorial, as well as in the hearts of survivors who gathered there.
