Jose Duarte - Rider # 183
Why do I ride?
my agency, Miracle of Love, Inc and the clients I serve in the Central Florida
area. As the Case Manager Supervisor for the Ryan White Part A Program, I
have witnessed how important these funds are for my agency to continue
providing direct client services. The funds I raised will be used to help
our consumers with direct supportive services such as: medication assistance,
vision care, housing and utility assistance, transportation, furnisher
vouchers, medical supplies, funeral expense and ensuring that consumers have a
Thanksgiving or a Holiday meal.
These are only a few of the things Central Florida provides with their
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.
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".
