    AIDS Walk Houston is an exciting, non-competitive walk event that helps increase community awareness and educate Houstonians about HIV/AIDS. A portion of proceeds from AIDS Walk Houston will be distributed to local HIV/AIDS service organizations that are dedicated to helping improve the quality of life for individuals and families affected by the disease.

    AIDS Walk Houston 2010 will take place Sunday, March 14th in  Sam Houston Park. Register TODAY by visiting www.AIDSWalkHouston.org.

    Houston-based Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE: MRO), a long-time partner of AIDS Foundation Houston (AFH) in the fight against HIV/AIDS, has made a three-year commitment of $140,000 to be the title sponsor of AIDS Walk Houston through 2012.

    “During these challenging economic times, it means everything to have a corporation stand up and say, „You can count on us for the long-term,?” said AFH CEO Kelly A. McCann. “Marathon?s partnership goes beyond simply writing a check; their employees have jumped on board and dedicated themselves to helping make AIDS Walk Houston the most successful it can possibly be.”

    AIDS Walk Houston is the largest HIV/AIDS fundraiser of its kind in Texas. Funds raised will help AFH, and several other HIV/AIDS service organizations, provide housing, testing, food, medical care, prevention education, counseling, pediatric programs and job training to thousands of Houstonians living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS.

    “Marathon is proud to serve as Presenting Sponsor for the 2010 AIDS Walk Houston, and for the next two years as well,” said Mike Stewart, Marathon?s Vice President of Accounting and Controller. “In addition to helping meet the energy needs of our customers, Marathon recognizes the importance of being an active, contributing member of the communities where we live and work. We are very pleased to support AIDS Foundation Houston and the outstanding work they are doing in the fight against HIV/AIDS throughout our community.”

    Online registration is now open for this year?s AIDS Walk Houston at www.AIDSWalkHouston.org.  No registration fee is charged and corporate, community, social and school walk team participation is encouraged.
