ReCept Pharmacy will, once again, be sponsoring the Hope Walk, October 25, 2015 Trinity Park, Fort Worth, Texas
AIDS Outreach Center (AOC) will hold its annual Walk to raise awareness of the current state of HIV/AIDS in our community, to raise funds for the program and services of AIDS Outreach Center, and to remember those we have lost in our battle against the world’s deadliest and costliest disease. AOC has moved the event to the Fall and changed the name to HOPE WALK in response to balancing out the growth of the two major special events, Evening of Hope and the Walk. We hope you will join us for our inaugural Hope Walk, which is a continuation of our 24th annual AOC Walk.
To register, please come to our Hope Walk Registration party at Buttons Restaurant (Fort Worth) on September 29th from 5-7PM.
Mission: To serve people living with or at risk for HIV with dignity and respect
Vision: In our community, people living with HIV receive quality care, and new infections are rare
AOC began in 1986 in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic among gay males as an all-volunteer organization in order to provide support to those dying from the disease. In just two years, the demand for services from AOC resulted in the hiring of its first two paid staff members and support quickly grew. Today, AOC has more than 30 staff members dedicated to providing 10 services aimed at preventing the spread of HIV, bringing those newly diagnosed into treatment, and improving the lives of those infected or affected by HIV.
AOC provides support services to more than 1,600 individuals and their families across all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, and sexual identities. AOC is currently the only non-profit organization that offers a continuum of support services to the HIV/AIDS community in Tarrant County and seven surrounding rural counties.
