AIDS Walk Orange County.

On Saturday, October 7, 2023, Radiant Health Centers hosted its 37th Annual AIDS Walk 2023 in Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley. As a longtime provider of HIV testing and treatment at our Irvine Clinic, this fundraising event in support of HIV/AIDS is a cause close to our hearts. Once again the community gave their full support, contributing generously to critical initiatives in HIV healthcare and social services.

Orange County Community Supports 37th Annual AIDS Walk

Attendees at this year’s event included the Mayor of Irvine, Farrah N. Khan; the Mayor of Fountain Valley, Kim Constantine; and Emmy® Award-winning journalist and HIV awareness advocate Tony Morrison. This AIDS Walk saw participants, supporters and donors deliver a strong message of solidarity, compassion and hope in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

The event’s more than 300 participants showed what can be achieved when a community unites behind a common goal. The total funds raised strongly demonstrate this, with an incredible $120,000 donated.

The Impact of AIDS Walk Orange County

AIDS Walk Orange County raises money for healthcare and social services in support of people living with HIV/AIDS within the local LGBTQ+ community. While fundraising is the primary goal, this event also offers a chance for the community to come together with the goal of helping to end the HIV epidemic.

As a leading LGBTQ+ healthcare provider in Orange County, Radiant Health Centers relies on and celebrates its donors and supporters. The money raised from AIDS Walk Orange County will have a real-world impact on the lives and outcomes of many within the local community.

Funds will be channeled into diverse crucial initiatives that include expansion of access to healthcare, continued support for prevention and education programs, continuation of counseling and support services, as well as housing assistance. Such initiatives are essential in improving the quality of life and well-being of individuals living with HIV in our area.
