The San Antonio AIDS Foundation (SAAF) founded the Walk for Life in 1991. Each year, hundreds of South Texans gather to celebrate life and to raise funds for SAAF. The Walk for Life (WFL) 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.
We are guided by the belief that HIV/AIDS is a disease and those affected by this disease should receive compassion and understanding. SAAF advocates a harm reduction philosophy believing that all individuals with HIV need compassionate services, including food and shelter, irrespective of their individual circumstances and practices. SAAF exists to provide dignity and comfort to individuals infected with HIV and AIDS. SAAF supports the provision of services without discrimination on any basis, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, age, sex, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, handicap, immigrant status, national origin, drug use, and criminal background.
