LOS ANGELES: Over 2,500 people from all walks of life participated in the Los Angeles Partnership Walk at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
Thirty-three teams from corporations, universities, schools and community organizations took a step to demonstrate their support for ending global poverty. Los Angeles Partnership Walk raised over $250,000. Twenty-five people, called “Ambassador 1000s” each raised over $1000 each. 100% of funds raised at Partnership Walk go directly to the projects supported by the Foundation; not a cent is spent on administrative costs.
The Aga Khan Foundation modeled programs are really showing that a lot can be done, not only by the Aga Khan Foundation, but by other organizations, that follow its lead in education, health care, rural development, microfinance and the environment.” He presented to the Foundation, a United States Flag that flew in Washington DC, during the July 4th, 2008 celebrations.
