Douglas White - Rider # 265
On Friday, November 20th through Sunday, November 22nd I will join hundreds of other individuals who will ride our bicycles on a 165-mile journey filled with hope, pride, and the dream of a future free of AIDS. This year marks the 17th year of The SMART Ride journey and I have set an ambitious goal to help raise $1250 to participate in this event.
The event guarantees that every penny I raise (with your help) will make its way to the ride beneficiaries, with a large portion going to Metro Inclusive Health here in Tampa. I believe that together, we can make a difference and help free future generations of living with HIV while helping those already at risk or infected stay healthy.
This year's ride will be unlike previous rides since we will not be riding as one large group and each individual rider is free to define their own route over the 3 days. I am committed to riding the full 165 miles and will post updates on my plans to this page. Rest assured, I have already begun training for the ride and am looking forward to getting back in the saddle this November.
