George Hehner - Crew # 2150
Once again, on November 15 and 16 I will be supporting 500 amazing individuals who are riding their bicycles 165 miles from Miami to Key West to raise money for Children’s Diagnostic Treatment Center (http://childrensdiagnostic.com/)
This amazing organization provides prenatal care, an early steps program, a comprehensive HIV family awareness program, research, primary care physicians, a dental clinic, a food pantry, a diaper pantry, and so much more. Every year they serve over 10,000 families in the tri-county area and with ongoing budget cuts they need our support even more.
This is the 16th year for the Smart Ride and to date over $10.5 million has been raised for various charities in the South Florida area. It is the country’s 2nd largest AIDS ride, and only 1 of 2 where 100% of the money raised goes towards the charity of the rider’s choice.
If you recall last years UNICORN costume was a hit and give riders a laugh and the strength needed to push on towards their goal.
This year I fully intend to get them to smile and be able to push onward to completing their amazing journey while raising awareness and funds for this great organization.
I have set a high goal this year but know with your support I can blow it out of the water. Any amount large or small will help and motivate me to ride on.
