Roger Bowersox - Rider # 61
To all my friends, family and contributors -
I am once again riding in the SMART Ride this on Friday November 17th, and Saturday November 18th. Last year I was moved by the generosity and help from all and am coming to you once again asking for your help in achieving my goal. The ride was a life changing experience. I never thought I would actually complete it, but I did, and want to do it again to raise money for this very worthwhile cause. I will again join hundreds of other individuals who will ride their bicycles 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 $1500 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".
I truly thank you for any contribution you can make for this cause, even a few dollars, as 100% actually goes to the AIDS organizations!
