ACR Health's 3 Major Fundraising Events
ACR Health is a not-for-profit, community-based organization providing prevention, education, and support services to individuals with chronic diseases including HIV/AIDS, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, asthma, substance use disorders, and serious mental illnesses. ACR Health, a legacy of AIDS Community Resources, serves the counties of Cayuga, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, Oswego, and St. Lawrence in New York State.
ACR Health stages 3 major fundraising walk/run events throughout the year. These funds focus on our Youth Services program which includes Adolescent Health Initiative, the Q Center and client emergencies. These funds help fill the gaps in funding for these programs and services.
The "walk/run season" starts off with the AIDS Hike for Life in the Mohawk Valley/Utica area on Sunday, April 23, 2017. The beautiful Hamilton College campus is the site for this 5K walk & 5K timed run. Register now for the AIDS Hike for Life by clicking the logo! Find out how to form a team by clicking HERE.
June brings the oldest of our events and one of the first fundraising walks in the area, the AIDS Walk/Run at Beaver Lake Nature Center in Central New York. This 5K walk, 5K & 10K timed runs will be held Sunday, June 4, 2017. This year, we celebrate the 25th Annual AIDS Walk/Run!
We wrap our walk/run season with the First Frost AIDS Walk/Run in the North Country/Watertown area held at the Thompson Park Zoo & Conservancy. This 5K walk & 5K timed run is held the first Sunday after Columbus Day. After the race, your race bib gets you free entry into the Zoo for the day!
