Laurent Thibault - Crew # 2061
I AM GETTING AN EARLY START SO I CAN INSPIRE MY TEAM!
I am asking for my friends and family to support me again this year in the 2019 SMARTRide to raise money and awareness for people living with HIV/AIDS.
On November 15th and 16th, 2019 I will join and support 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 be the 16th year of The SMART Ride journey,
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". This will be my second year as Cheerleading Team Manager for this event. Last year as my first year participating I was able to see for myself the dedication of the crew and riders towards supporting this amazing cause and I immediately signed up to be in it again this year. At closing ceremonies at the end of the ride, they held a very moving closing ceremonies at the Key West pier and you could see how many are affected by this disease.
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). If all of my friends and family donated just $1 or more, I could raise over $10,000! Any amount goes 100% to the support of services desperately needed for this population of people so please consider giving. With the world press and coverage of this event I would LOVE to be able to tangibly demonstrate to the world how much we care!
DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE AND GO DIRECTLY TO THE ORGANIZATION SECURELY.
IF YOU HAVE ALREADY DONATED, THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR GENEROUS SUPPORT THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE WITH HIV/AIDS AND I APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!
