Kevin O'Connor - Rider # 10
I can see 20/20 a world free of HIV, and I want to help make that a reality, I have committed to do my part. This is my 8th year of participation. Due to COVID restrictions, we will not be riding from Miami to Key West 165-miles as we have done in prior years. Each participant is developing their own plan localized to where they reside. I will be riding 16.5 miles per day in Ft. Lauderdale on Thursday, November 19 through Sunday, November 22. Each participant has their own plan. 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 17th year of The SMART Ride journey, I have set a 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).
The event guarantees that every penny that I raise (with your help) will be given to AIDS Service Organizations 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, infected or at risk today stay healthy.
We can share 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."
