Scott Haskins - Rider # 199On 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).
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.
My team, CDTC Cyclones, is participating for the overall good of the cause and have also designated Children's Diagnostic and Treatment Center (CDTC) as the primary beneficiary for our portion. If you are familiar with the work that CDTC has done over the years, you would be moved by their dedication as not only a healthcare facility for those in need, but as a family of professionals all working towards a common goal. I am PROUD to be part of this family and am asking that you help me beat my goal of $1250.00 for this event. Last year, as a result of our efforts, the Smart Ride raised $1,073,880.00 as an organization and CDTC was presented with a check for $149,601.00 during the annual Check Distribution party!
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".
