2012 Agency invite to participate in the AIDS Walk


As an agency in our community that provides care to those who experience multiple barriers including HIV/AIDS, you are invited to join in the annual SCOTIABANK AIDS Walk For Life, Sept 22. 2012. We are hoping you will support us by setting up an agency info booth or activity at the event this year. As many of the individuals we provide services utilize other agencies we thought it might be a powerful partnership to provide presence, advocacy and support to those afflicted by HIV/AIDS together.

There are so many ways the dollars raised help/benefit individuals in need. This past year, we provided clients who are HIV positive with the necessary vitamins, nutritional supplements, and monthly grocery cards as well as support, which includes but is not limited to—housing, health navigation, and health prevention education.

ASK provides aid to marginalized individuals whose lives have been impacted by HIV/AIDS, homelessness, addiction, mental health and/or physical health issues in Kamloops/Merritt and the surrounding areas with a number of services. 100% of all proceeds raised from the AIDS Walk stays within ASK Wellness to help these individuals in our community. Persons living with HIV/AIDS should not be fighting this battle alone and with some support we can make a big difference.

Furthermore, your organization will benefit from exposure and association as a supporter of the AIDS Walk for Life. We also invite you to gather a group together and walk the morning Saturday, September 22, 2012 at the Kamloops Farmer’s Market.

Bob Hughes,
Executive Director, ASK Wellness
