Join ACAS in our 20th anniversary to raise funds for East and Southeast Asians living with and affected by HIV! Please visit our ACAS ScotiaRun Charity Challenge blog at http://run4acas.tumblr.com for more information and details on how you can register and become a part of the ACAS team!
As an incentive, free registration fee will be waived for first 3 PHAs to register to run or walk with ACAS, and the top 10 fundraisers will have their entry fee refunded after the race. There will be a special prize for the top fundraiser, so start training and ask your network to sponsor you!
If you are a PHA interested in running, please contact Andrew at firstname.lastname@example.org as the first 3 PHA will be eligible for free registration. If you are a youth (age < 25), please contact Euan at email@example.com and let him know you are interested in registering and whether you may need assistance with the registration cost.
The money raised from the ACAS ScotiaRun Charity Challenge will help provide emergency funds to our East and Southeast Asian HIV+ service users to cover medication or emergency housing costs, further their capacities through gaining a chance to enrol in education and training opportunities, and help support the Ontario Positive Asians (OPA+) network. The funds raised will also allow ACAS to continue providing quality and individualized services to our service users and empower them through providing social support opportunities through groups such as ALPHA, increasing their holistic health knowledge through the health promotion workshops, offering complementary an array of complementary therapies including acupuncture and massage therapy services, and along with support from our pharmaceutical company sponsors, allowing us to hold an health-focused retreat for our HIV+ services users HIV at YMCA Geneva Park, in Orillia, ON.
Thanks for running/walking with us!
