Chuck Hinchliffe - Rider # 72

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. 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 15th year of The SMART Ride journey, I have set an ambitious goal to help raise more than the required $1250 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.

Miracle of Love Inc. is the oldest and largest non-profit AIDS Service Organization (ASO) for communities of color in Central Florida. Miracle of Love’s founder, Lowell D. Stafford, began providing care services to multicultural communities in 1991 with the use of volunteers and funded partly by his own Social Security checks. The organization was not incorporated until 1997, and in 1998 received its first federal grant award. MOL’s mission is to provide comprehensive, multicultural HIV/AIDS care, education and prevention services that are effective and responsive to the Central Florida communities. Miracle of Love, Inc. services are designed to promote HIV/AIDS prevention and care services for people living with HIV/AIDS in order for them achieve positive medical outcomes by keeping them in care and treatment programs. With over 25 years of outstanding service, Miracle of Love, Inc. continues to serve as a resource for education, support, medical and non-medical case management, housing case management, community advocacy, confidential HIV/ STI screening, and linkage to care.

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".
