Nick Bell - Rider # 282
The HIV/AIDS epidemic is far from over. Medical advancements have made tremendous differences for people living with HIV/AIDS but tens of thousands of people still become infected every year and thousands still succumb to the disease. And there are additional thousands of folks living with the disease in great need of support for everything from medications to legal services to meals. For these reasons and more, I am participating for the fourth time in the SMART Ride from Miami to Key West, November 16 and 17. I will join hundreds of other individuals who will ride their bicycles the 165 miles from Miami to Key West. I have set an ambitious goal of $5,000 - all of which will go to AIDS Service Organizations to support prevention, education and direct services.
I have personally contributed $1,000 to my fund-raising effort and with your help, we can make a real difference. In the words of Margaret Mead, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." Thank you for your support and for being a true hero.
