'World AIDS Day Detroit' holding special event Friday

Posted: Updated:

From coast to coast and across the globe, tens of millions of people will mark World AIDS Day.

The campaign unites people in the fight against disease and seeks to honor those who have died from the illness.

According to the United Nations, more than 35 million people are living with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Just a fraction of that number have access to treatment.

Organizers with World AIDS day Detroit are hosting several events this week.

There's a mayor's breakfast Friday at The Fillmore Theater. Special guest and AIDS activist Kimberly Locke from American Idol will be present.

Fox 2's Amy Andrews will the emcee for the breakfast.

The breakfast runs from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Tickets are required.
