What is AIDS Walk New York?:
For the 2013 AIDS Walk New York, look for outstanding entertainment from celebrity supporters including Christian Borle and Megan Hilty from Smash, Tony and Emmy winner Bebe Neuwirth, singer Martha Wash, and Glee's Alex Newell. The stars will be supporting thousands in a 10-kilometer (6.2 mile) walk in Central Park to raise money to help people with HIV and AIDS.
