AIDS Walk 2015 (Summer Series #2)

Today I am sharing photos from this year's annual AIDS WALK in San Francisco. My husband's company is one of the main sponsors of the walk and so they field in a team each year. This year the contingent is much smaller than the previous walk that I have attended, but still it was a fun day.

The region was having an atypical weather for that week - hot and humid, overcast with temporary sunshine getting through the clouds. There was even thunder, imagine that!
