GOAL: $17,000
RAISED: $486

Glen Weinzimer - Crew # 2000


I can see 20/20 a world free of HIV.

 This year will mark the 17th year of The SMART Ride journey, I have set an ambitious goal to raise $17,000  because I believe what we do makes a difference (and because 100% of the money you donate will go back to AIDS Service Organizations around Florida).

When I started SMART Ride in 2003 it was to be a one time event. The purpose was to prove that individuals coming together without big enterprises could return 100% of every dollar raised and make a real and significant difference. This one time event became a 16 year amazing adventure that has touched me in so many ways. Seeing individuals reveal their status to me and sometimes asking my help reveal it to their partners, I have seen individuals receive a new eye ball to save their vision, I have seen people receive the dignity they need to return to work, I have seen those at highest risk in the most economically deprived areas get bus passes and food vouchers to stay healthy. I have seen tests that other government and private funding won't cover, get covered and ultimately save their lives. I have seen so much amazing humanity as people get up early to train, to build community and to raise money. I have seen strangers help change bike tires when they break down on the 165 mile journey. I have seen people hold hands with strangers to share their heart and be there for them.

 Margaret Mead once said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world, indeed; it is  thing that ever has." Let's all pay it forward.
With gratitude,

Glen
