Gary Gaal - Rider # 40



GREETINGS FROM TAMPA, FLORIDA!


In years past, I'd been supporting a few of my friends on this ride by monetary donations; and offering my services at their fund-raising events throughout the seasons... all because I cared NOT ONLY for them, but for the wonderful 'movement' they were supporting. Several years ago, I decided to be on their ‘Pit Crew’, and from the moment I witnessed the candle-lighting event at the opening ceremony that year, I committed to riding my bike the following year, and I have enjoyed the camaraderie every mile along the way each year.  THIS NOVEMBER... I'm pedaling again! 


Now is the time to BE ONE OF MY SUPPORTERS, RIDE WITHIN MY HEART...


On Friday, November 15th, and Saturday, November 16th... 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 15th year of The SMART Ride journey, I have set an ambitious goal to help raise more than the required $1,250 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".
