Sam Houston Park - Downtown Houston
Sunday, March 1, 2020
For 30 years AIDS Walk Houston has been and remains Houston’s greatest response in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Close to 10,000 men, women, and children along with our benefiting AIDS Service Organizations gather in Sam Houston Park in Downtown Houston to raise awareness and funds to support HIV programs in the community. We honor and remember friends and family, celebrate those who are living full lives with the virus, and recognize the work still to be done.
Do you participate in a Donor-Advised Fund with Fidelity Investments, Charles Schwab, Greater Kansas City CF, or BNY Mellon? You can use DAFDirect to recommend AFH for a donation from your fund! If you are supporting a specific team or walker with your DAF donation, be sure to drop us an email so we can make sure it gets credited properly.
AIDS Walk Houston benefits numerous AIDS Service Organizations in the Houston area. Benefiting Agencies for the 2020 Walk included:
African American State of Emergency Task Force
Baylor College of Medicine Teen Health Clinic
Bee Busy Wellness Center
Brentwood Community Foundation
Harris County Hospital District Foundation

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 participated in his 20th consecutive AIDS Walk Houston, and he and his partner Jonathan Harris set a goal of raising $20,000 this year. The couple adopted the theme "202020" to symbolize this and created a video to commemorate David's history of support for AIDS Walk Houston and #EndingTheEpidemic. AIDS Foundation Houston could not be more grateful to David and Jonathan for their dedication to Walk and the inspiring example they set.
