R. J. Hadley - Crew # 2079On Friday November 17th, and Saturday November 18th I will join hundreds of other individuals who will ride their bicycles or crew from Miami to Key West 165-miles. Our journey will be one filled with hope, filled with pride, and filled with the dream of a future free of AIDS. This year will mark the 14th year of The SMART Ride journey, I have set an ambitious goal to help raise more than the required $1250 because I believe what we do makes a difference (and because 100% of the money you donate will go back to the community).
My own journey began in the early 1990's via bicycle ride from Minneapolis to Chicago. Since then I've rode or crewed rides like this around the country. As a person with HIV I found these rides to both challenge me and offer support to agencies that do actual good.
My journey continues with you. friends family co workers, strangers all seeking a common good: to build a decent life for others. HIV affects people everywhere. Health care costs increase. Money, YOUR DONATION will help agencies by providing access to care, PREVENTION care and general assistance
