John Billingsley (Doctor Phlox) and his wife will be leading a team in a sponsored walk on Saturday to raise money for an AIDS charity.
"The Posada is a two mile walk (really more of a leisurely stroll) to commemorate and honor those we've lost to HIV/AIDS," Billingsley told TrekToday. "It takes place around dusk, is candlelit, takes in gorgeous churches and civic institutions [and] incorporates beautiful music."
The Posada is a yearly event to raise funds for the LA-based AIDS Service Center, and this will be the charity's fifteenth walk. "The ASC is devoted to helping people who are living with AIDS and those who are afraid such a thing simply isn't possible," said a spokesperson for the Center. "We provide a raft of services to underprivileged people throughout LA County who are affected by this disease: medical care, psychiatric assistance, food, shelter, transportation, toys for kids at Christmas time, you name it."
