Run & Walk for AIDS

Our other top annual fundraiser is The Run & Walk for AIDS, a family and pet-friendly event, has a two-mile walk and a 5K run. The event began in 1991 as “Walk for Life” to raise community awareness and generate funds in support of the mission and services of the San Antonio AIDS Foundation.

The Run & Walk for AIDS is both an enormous fundraiser and awareness builder for SAAF. Each year we are incredibly grateful for the support we receive from all parts of the community: corporate sponsorships, social support agency participation manning information booths, and those who participate and get pledges in support of their walk or run. We have prizes in various age groups for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers. We encourage participants to compete by raising money from pledges in support of their effort.

World AIDS Day

Each year San Antonio AIDS Foundation holds a remembrance ceremony for all who have passed from AIDS, as well as those who are living with or have loved ones affected by HIV/AIDS. The event is held on World AIDS Day every December 1. In 2017, SAAF presented a dramatic “21-Dove Release,” as well as the release of hundreds of red balloons.

SAAF partnered with other area organizations to form the San Antonio World AIDS Day Collaborative and held its annual Gathering of Remembrance and Hope Ceremony at Our Lady of the Lake University. The event was followed by a candlelight walk to the courtyard and The Commissioners Court of Bexar County proclaimed December 1, 2016 to be WORLD AIDS DAY

WEBB Party

The Roaring 25 took The Aztec Theatre by storm on Friday, April 20, 2018, 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Think “Roaring ’20s” meets the 21st century and you’ll have an idea of what we’re talking about! As always, it featured outrageous costumes (including folks in slick ’20s get-ups), top-notch live entertainment, popular DJs, cuisine tasting stations, lights, cameras, action – and the most diverse and colorful crowd of any Fiesta event! See you in 2019!

All net proceeds of the WEBB Party support the San Antonio AIDS Foundation’s core services and programs: free HIV and other STD testing, case management, HIV prevention education in public schools, the Nourishing SAAF Hot Meals Program for HIV-positive adults, and the Carson House transitional living facility.

See you 2019!

Past Events

Desert Migration: Documentary Film Screening

The San Antonio AIDS Foundation (SAAF) hosted the first Texas community screening of “Desert Migration,” an award-winning documentary about the unique challenges faced by long-term survivors of HIV/AIDS, from 6:30-9:30 p.m., Thursday, June 23, at the Santikos Bijou Cinema Bistro at Wonderland of the Americas Mall, 4522 Fredericksburg Road. Proceeds benefited SAAF and the local screening is timed to coincide with the 35th anniversary of the first official AIDS diagnoses in the United States. “Desert Migration” focuses on a group of gay men, all long-term HIV survivors, who sought refuge in Southern California’s Palm Springs. The film explores the physical, medical and emotional side effects of living with HIV – as well as the stigma that still exists in American society 35 years after AIDS was officially recognized as an epidemic in the United States and around the world.

First in Hope, First in Service: 30th Year of Service, Luncheon and Auction

From first-class silent and live auctions to the deeply moving keynote address by acclaimed AIDS and human rights activist Cleve Jones, “First in Hope, First in Service” reflected on the substantial impact SAAF has had on the health and welfare of the San Antonio community over the past three decades – and it was a chance to share our plans for the future as we work toward our ultimate goal of creating a city free of HIV. We were deeply honored that Mr. Jones agreed to be our keynote speaker. His work to fight HIV and AIDS, to end stigma and to demand the equal rights of LGBT people across our country is legendary. We are proud that he will be a part of our 30th anniversary and that he will share his experiences and insights with us as we continue our own fight against HIV and AIDS here in San Antonio.
