NEWS Register now for Annual AIDS Foundation Red Umbrella Stroll

AIDS Foundation Houston's signature fundraising event in the fight against HIV/AIDS is just one month away. The 27th Annual "Red Umbrella Stroll," presented by Marathon Oil, takes place on Sunday, March 6 at Sam Houston Park in downtown Houston. Funds raised help local HIV/AIDS service organizations provide programs and services to thousands of Houstonians impacted. A goal of $600,000 has been set, and more than 6,000 Houstonians are expected to gather to remember family and friends and to honor those living with HIV/AIDS.

AIDS Foundation Houston, now in its 34th year, is the first organization in Texas to provide dedicated HIV education and services. AIDS Walk Houston is the agency’s largest annual fundraiser that simultaneously garners touch-points and awareness of HIV and AIDS related issues within the greater Houston community.

The 5K walk benefits HIV/AIDS services organizations and almost 30,000 Houstonians currently living with HIV/AIDS. 

Benefitting agencies include: AIDS Foundation Houston, Inc.; Baylor College of Medicine – Teen Health Clinic; Bering Omega Community Services; Bering Support Network; Brentwood Community Foundation; Change Happens!; FLAS, Inc.; Lazarus House; LIVE Consortium; Resurrection Metropolitan Community Church; and the T.R.U.T.H. Project, Inc. Additional organizations that would benefit from participating are invited to apply.

Registration begins at noon on Sunday, March 6, and the walk will kick off at 1 p.m. A festival with live music and food trucks will follow this year’s walk.
