Since 1991, Action Wellness has shown our appreciation for an individuals or individuals who, through their work, their vision, and their philanthropy have made a very real different in the lives of people living with HIV and other chronic illnesses. We have recognized them by giving them our highest honor: the Friend for Life Award.
Our Friends for Life embody our mission that “No one should face HIV or chronic illness alone.” They have given Action Wellness a significant amount of additional resources. Whether it is through a financial donation, a gift of time, or a gift of talent, these extraordinary individuals change the world we live in for the better. We could not be more grateful.
