Welcome to The SMART Ride 10! As we prepare for our 10th anniversary we do it with direction, dedication and determination, we do it with a hope that this year will be the last year that we will need to ride, and that our future is one free of AIDS.
SMART Ride 10 will take place November 15th-16th, 2013 (with Orientation day on November 14th) and will travel from Miami to Key West over the course of 2 days. Traveling with us will be hundreds of volunteers (crew) ready to deliver everything from a smile to a hug, to water and Gatorade. Our crews are at the ready to assist with everything from helping fix a flat tire, to sweep vehicles to assist should you need it. The SMART Ride also travels with a full medical team of doctors and nurses, massage therapists. Our priceless volunteers mark the route with signs alerting others of your presence and they help serve breakfast, lunch and dinner alongside our sponsors.
On SMART Ride 9 those involved in the ride broke fundraising records for our event, returning over $880,000 throughout the State of Florida. This year in our 10th, the goal is loftier and more aggressive, as we reach for and look to exceed $1 Million dollars. How can we raise so much money? It’s with your help, which means we need everyone to help fundraise and help our fellow participants in their personal goals. Remember, it takes all of us to make a difference, stop the spread of HIV/AIDS and put an end to this pandemic.
If you would like to become more involved, help with providing assistance either as a sponsor or as a volunteer throughout the year, please reach out to us.
For now, may the wind be at your back and the road ahead clear.
