SAAF Run & Walk for AIDS was previously know as the Walk for Life and was founded in 1991. The Run & Walk for AIDS was debuted in 2012. Each year, hundreds of South Texans gather to celebrate life and to raise funds for SAAF. The Run & Walk for AIDS promotes awareness and generates funds that allow SAAF to continue its pursuit of providing compassionate medical care and social services to people with HIV/AIDS and to help prevent the spread of HIV through education and free HIV testing.
This is a day for family, friends, co-workers and even pets to join in and support SAAF while promoting community awareness. Last year several hundred people gathered together and in 2014 we are anticipating a significant increase in attendance. The Run & Walk for AIDS is an excellent way for groups and corporations to get involved as well as team fundraise.
