SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., May 3, 2013 – Today, Iconosys, Inc.™, an equity partner to Monster Offers (MONT), and a leading developer of over 1000 family safety and lifestyle Smartphone apps (including the ever popular Trick or Tracker® and DriveReply® apps), announces that its convenient Smartphone app for the AIDS Services Foundation Orange County (ASF)’s AIDS Walk Orange County is now available for iPhone users. The app gives Android and iPhone users access to better and more convenient tools for registering for, donating to, and supporting the efforts of this important and well-known event.
Last year, ASF’s AIDS Walk event raised $515,000 from donations collected. The 2013 goal is to raise $575,000 dollars. In 2012, more than 2,000 people walked at the Disneyland® Resort to help raise funds to prevent the spread of HIV and improve the lives of those in Orange County affected by HIV/AIDS. This year more than 150 walk teams have already signed up, and donations are already close to $340,000. AIDS Walk is Orange County’s largest HIV/AIDS fundraiser, and the 5 km pledge walk is organized to raise funds for and raise awareness about HIV/AIDS. Since 1996, ASF has been the primary organizer for the event
Funds raised at the annual walk are distributed to local agencies to help provide essential prevention and care programs to thousands of men, women, and children living with HIV/AIDS in Orange County. Services provided through AIDS Walk Orange County funding include food, housing, transportation, case management, home care, prevention, legal services, HIV testing, and support groups.
This year’s AIDS Walk event is scheduled for May 4th, 2013 at the Disneyland® Resort. Corporate sponsors include Disneyland, Iconosys, Pacific Life, PIMCO Foundation, ASICS, Pacific Life, PIMCO, AT&T, Wells Fargo, Starbucks, Alaska Airlines, Macys, Boomers, and Doheny LLC to name a few. A full list of sponsors can be accessed through the new AIDS Walk OC app.

Their efforts have touched, and continue to touch, the lives of so many. We are proud to align ourselves with an organization that maintains such a high level of commitment to their cause.”

About AIDS Services Foundation Orange County
AIDS Services Foundation of Orange County (ASF) was founded 27 years ago at the beginning of the AIDS epidemic by a small, dedicated group of community volunteers to provide support to their friends and loved ones who were dying of AIDS and in desperate need of help.
Over the years, ASF has served over 75% of the individuals affected by HIV/AIDS in Orange County and has evolved into the most comprehensive and experienced nonprofit HIV/AIDS service agency in Orange County, CA. ASF’s staff of more than 50 people reflects the communities served – more than 25% identify themselves as Latino and bilingual in Spanish. ASF is governed by an all-volunteer 17-member board of directors who are leaders in the community. Over 600 volunteers gave over 26,000 hours of their time last year – the equivalent of more than 12 full-time employees. Among our volunteers are people living with HIV/AIDS, whose very personal understanding of this disease further enhances our ability to serve our clients.
