The mission of Action Cycling Atlanta (ACA) is to raise awareness and funding for HIV/AIDS vaccine research that will one day eradicate the disease. To achieve this mission, ACA produces the AIDS Vaccine 200 (AV200); a cycling event designed to challenge individuals and teams; while 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, the AV200 creates a spirit of hope that shows what can be accomplished when we strive for a common purpose and support each other in doing so.
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.
