Our Mission



The mission of ACA is to raise awareness and funding for HIV/AIDS vaccine research that will one day eradicate the disease AND to AIDS service organizations that educate the public on HIV/AIDS related issues, work to improve the lives of those affected by the disease and work to reduce the spread of the disease.

This mission is achieved by inspiring our community to work towards a world where HIV/AIDS is part of the human history and not part of its future, using friendship, respect and sportsmanship, to accomplish our goals.

ACA  is an all volunteer run organization that donates 100% of all money raised by participants to its beneficiaries.  Since 2003, ACA has raised more than $2 million for AIDS vaccine research at the Emory Vaccine Center and other Atlanta-area AIDS service organizations.
