Patrick Gibbons - Rider # 65

This will be my 4th Smartride (one was virtual) in honor of my brother John who passed away from AIDS complications in 1993. I ride to keep his memory alive and to raise money for the agencies who are helping today’s HIV/Aids patients of today. Last year I raised almost $7,000 and would love to top that in the 2022 ride (Smartride 19). Help a brother out! 

There are many ways to make a difference, there are so many wonderful charities to choose from. I have chosen The SMART Ride (Southern Most AIDS/HIV Ride) because 100% of every dollar I raise will be shared with AIDS Service Organizations around Florida. Very few organizations can boast that they have this guarantee, in-fact it is unheard of in an event like this. 

On Friday November 18th, and Saturday November 19th 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, with pride, and with the dream of a future free of AIDS.

I have set an ambitious goal to help raise more than the required $1250 because I believe what we do makes a difference. Did you know that those being infected at the highest rate are ages 13-23, not a typo! Education, prevention and care can make this disease a memory instead of a present-day reality. Nothing would give me more pleasure than to hang up my bicycle and know that the world is free of HIV and AIDS.

I hope you will consider joining me on this journey and make a donation.

Margaret Mead once said "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world, indeed; it is the only thing that ever has." You are part of the change, thank you.
