David Centanni is an extraordinary example of what can happen when an individual becomes passionate about a cause and commits to serving that cause. In 2020, he will participate in his 20th consecutive AIDS Walk Houston, and he has set a goal of raising $20,000 this year. He has adopted the theme "202020" to symbolize this and created a video to commemorate his history of support for AIDS Walk Houston and #EndingTheEpidemic. AIDS Foundation Houston could not be more grateful to David for his two decades as a Walk participant and the inspiring example he has set.
