CELEBRATION20 years ago a man at the prime of his basketball career walked to the podium and did one of the most courageous things - shared his HIV status with the world. More than just retiring from the game of basketball he then took on the charge to educate and prevent the spread of HIV. The Magic Johnson Foundation staff, volunteers, beneficiaries, donors and the community at large take this opportunity to celebrate the life of our founder, Earvin "Magic" Johnson.
BE THE ONE20 years ago Magic Johnson announced to the world that he was HIV positive. Today nearly 1.2 million people are living with HIV, and 1 out 5 of them don’t know they're infected. You don’t have to be the ONE? Know your status and get tested today!
