Alfa Hike for Hope and 5k – April 11, 2015 – Hickory NC

Alfa Hike for Hope

A nice 5k in downtown Hickory for a good cause.


ALFA was organized in 1987 as a grassroots effort to provide support services to those affected by HIV/AIDS in Burke County. In 1989, with the help of a United Way Venture Grant, ALFA was established as a not-for-profit AIDS Service Organization. ALFA has remained a United Way-funded agency and currently has a staff of nine full-time employees.

Twenty-three years later, ALFA provides case management to individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS, prevention education and free HIV testing and counseling in Alexander, Alleghany, Ashe, Burke, Caldwell, Catawba, Lincoln, Wilkes and Watauga Counties.

ALFA. Advancing Life. Fighting AIDS.
