Donald Dotzauer - Rider # 1


On Friday November 16th, and Saturday November 17th I will join hundreds of other individuals who will ride their bicycles or crew from Miami to Key West 165-miles. This will be my fourth year and second serving as the Co-Captain of the Key West Mile Markers. Last year, I had the privilege of leading out all riders as the leading fundraiser raising over $28,000. Our Key West team shattered historical records raising a total of $107,500.

This Ride has changed my life. My teammates have become my family. I lost my younger brother in May and will be riding in his memory along with the memory of many friends whose lives were taken prematurely by this dreaded disease, often robbed of dignity and abandoned by their families. I remain a committed warrior for education and prevention, particularly among young teens and adults. 

This year will mark the 15th year of The SMART Ride journey which has donated over 9.3 million dollars to charity.I have set an ambitious goal to raise more than $30,000. I have raised over $59,000 since 2015 and am demonstrating significant personal financial commitment to substantiate my  passionate interest in the Cause as I ask you to join me in support. Every penny raised by riders is given to seven AIDS Service Organizations through Southern Florida providing prevention efforts, 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 make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. Winston Churchill
