WHY JOIN US AS RUNNER/WALKER OR DONATE FOR THE CAUSE

We at ACAS are committed to providing culturally and linguistically appropriate services for East and Southeast Asians including people living with HIV and members of the 2SLGBTIQ+ community. Your engagement with our annual charity challenge will ensure that our service users receive the much needed services in the best manner possible.

HOW WILL THE MONEY RAISED BE SPENT

All funds raised will help elevate our ability to provide care and support our service users:

-50% of the funds raised will provide opportunities for Asian service users living with HIV the opportunity to attend a biennial Holistic Health Retreat and support emergency financial needs through the Dr. Kirby Hsu PHA Fund;
-30% of the funds will help support additional project costs such as the provision of honouraria that is not covered by our funders so we can build the capacities of queer and trans Asian youth to become future leaders in our community;
-Lastly, 20% of the funds will help cover organizational overhead and administration costs which are not provided for by funders in the ever competitive and precarious funding environment.
