Juan Benitez - Rider # 339

On Friday JANUARY 19th, and Saturday JANUARY 20th I will join hundreds of other individuals who will ride their bicycles from Miami to Key West 165-miles (for Spanish speakers, that’s 265 kilometers!). Our journey will be one filled with hope, pride, and with the dream of a future free of AIDS. This is MY FIRST MAJOR RIDE and I’m totally psyched it will be one that can benefit others. I have set an ambitious fundraising goal of $2000 (+). I chose this charity because I believe what we do as individuals can make a difference and also because 100% of the money raised will go back to the community.

The event guarantees that every penny that we raise with your help will be given to AIDS Service Organizations and targeted towards prevention, education and direct services. Together I hope we can make a real difference.  We can change the world, and help prevent future generations of someday contracting 
HIV, while helping those already affected, infected or at risk today stay healthy.

 “Everything you want’s a dream away. Under this pressure, under this weight, we are diamonds taking shape.” Coldplay
