Victor Diaz-herman - rider # 2032

After four years of serving on The SMART Ride as a Crew member, I am excited to be participating as a Rider in 2017. On Friday, January 19th, I will embark on a two-day journey alongside my mother, friends, and hundreds of other amazing individuals. Together we will ride 165 miles from Miami to Key West with one common goal - An AIDS free generation!

The SMART Ride creates awareness about HIV/AIDS while also raising funds to support programs and services for people living with HIV/AIDS across Florida. The reality is that South Florida has the highest HIV/AIDS contraction rate in the United States. And, with the uncertainty around Health Care reform and HIV/AIDS funding at the Federal level under the current administration, agencies and their clients rely on The SMART Ride to fund essential programs and services for people living with or affected by the epidemic.

This year I ride:

1. In memory of those who are no longer with us as a result of HIV related complications.
2. In honor of those who are living with HIV/AIDS, but can't physically endure the challenges of riding 165 miles.
3. For the LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness which we serve at Pridelines, 25% of which are living with HIV/AIDS.
4. For the hundreds of clients living with HIV/AIDS who take advantage of Pridelines PozConnect support groups and holistic therapies.

And, unlike other rides across the country, The SMART Ride guarantees that 100% of every dollar I raise (with your help) will be given to AIDS Service Organizations across the state and directed to prevention, education and direct services. Together we can make a real difference, we can change the world, and help free future generations of living with HIV, while helping those already affected, living with or at-risk to stay healthy.

Please help me reach my goal by making a tax-deductible donation today. No words have ever been more true as those of Margaret Mead who said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has".
