Magic Johnson

Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson shocked the world in 1991 when he revealed that he had contracted the HIV virus. Since then, Johnson has raised millions of dollars for HIV/AIDS research through his Magic Johnson Foundation. Last year, when the ex-basketball player commemorated 20 years living with HIV, the foundation launched a year-wide effort to raise awareness, including setting up free HIV testing sites around the country in November 2011.
