Max Spragovsky - Rider # 214
As you know every year since 2016 I have been doing the SMART Ride in Florida to benefit people who are fighting HIV/AIDS. 165 miles of a gorgeous tropical bike ride from Miami to Key West. Fighting the winds, blazing sun, sometimes the rain... But all because I care for people and with each $1 we are getting closer to find a cure.
Unfortunately 2020 had other plans. Additionally, last month, the organisation decided that the 165-mile ride would not happen as planned but would move to a virtual challenge for all participants to take part. As much as I was looking forward to this so much as it would have been my 5th ride, safety comes first. But! I have decided to do 165 miles locally, here in California. With the help of New Bears Republic Team, who were going to join me in Florida this year, we`re going to do local rides here around LA, PS and maybe NorCal.
My goal is to raise $1,500 by mid-November towards HIV/AIDS research and people in need to fight it, and I hope my friends can help me reach that goal! 100% of the funds raise benefits the nonprofit organisations and goes towards the community. Any amount, whether it be $5, $10, $50, etc., is much appreciated towards this effort!
I will also be hosting a LIVE raffle event on FB but details will come a bit later. To those who are still waiting for their artwork from last year`s donations please be patient. I apologise, but this year has impacted all of us in not the worst possible way. Your gifts are on their way <3
