Sign up now, take pledges, and take action to raise funds to help end the HIV epidemic in Houston during AIDS Walk Houston 2021, happening virtually now through Friday, April 9, 2021.

For 32 years, AIDS Foundation Houston, Inc. (AFH) has brought together tens of thousands of Houstonians in a walk to end HIV. This year, AFH will host the 32nd annual Walk to End HIV—also known as AIDS Walk Houston—virtually, inviting Houstonians to participate any time

For 2021, participants can choose any activity—walking, running, swimming, dancing, cooking, painting, singing, etc.—to raise money and help end the HIV epidemic in Houston.

Participants can also create a fundraising team or individual fundraising page through the AFH website, or join or contribute to an existing team or page. Fundraising efforts can be easily shared on social media in order to encourage other Houstonians to participate and give.

Prizes will be awarded to individuals for every $50, $125, $500 and $1000 they raise, as well as to the top three fundraising teams in each category. 

AIDS Walk Houston raises funds for AFH and several benefitting agencies that provide education, pediatric programs, housing, food, medical care, counseling, job training and more to the almost 30,000 Houstonians currently living with HIV/AIDS. These organizations also provide essential services and programs for the LGBTQ and allied community in the Greater Houston area.
