What is this?
On August 27, 2022 ALFA will hold its 1st Annual Stepping Out to Stop Stigma 0.5K (Yes, “Point” 5). The “race for the rest of us” is a "challenging" entire ½ kilometer, where competitors are rewarded not only with the satisfaction of ridding our community of stigma, but also participation medals, cool swag, pancakes and coffee, a donut in the middle, and a beer/soda & pizza waiting at the finish line.
Where does the money go?
Good question! The past few years have been a time of remarkable growth for ALFA, as we respond to emerging public health crises - in particular an increase in HIV and Hepatitis C infections, and opioid/injection drug use in our service region.... and of course COVID-19 (obs). In addition to HIV services, ALFA has added new services including Hepatitis C testing and linkage to care, STI testing, Syringe Access Services, Naloxone Distribution, PrEP Navigation services, COVID-19 testing, a dedicated Housing Department, a mobile testing unit, and we opened a two additional sites - downtown Hickory & Morganton! (And we are *exhausted*)
ALFA now serves 3 times as many people as in 2016!
All of this would not be possible without the generous support from our community.
