AIDS Walk Houston 2020

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.

202020: A STORY OF PASSION AND COMMITMENT

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.
