Magic Johnson Foundation Celebrates 20 Years

with Tess Finkle of Metro PR
Twenty years ago, Magic Johnson did something that most people wouldn't dream of doing. He announced to the world that he was HIV positive. While now it may seem less taboo, back then an admission like that was unheard of, and the open atmosphere surrounding this illness is something that younger generations take for granted. But instead of withdrawing into seclusion, he moved on after leaving the Los Angeles Lakers. He started the Magic Johnson Foundation and has worked hard to educate and inspire people all over the world.



To commemorate 20 years since his historic announcement, the Magic Johnson Foundation celebrated their 20-year anniversary with a Point Forward event at the Staples Center. Metro PR helped orchestrate this important day, which included a press conference, inspiring speeches and afterwards, a celebration of 20 years of service.
