Paul Mcdonnell - Rider # 569
Hi Friends,I wanted to share with you that I have decided to taken on an EPIC challenge and will be asking you who can to support this important cause.On November 15th and 16th, I will bike 165 miles in two days from Miami to Key West in the SMART RIDE 16, a bicycle ride to help raise funds for those infected or affected with HIV and AIDS.
While this is probably one of the most daunting challenges to date in my life, it is nothing compared to the fear I experienced back in the late 80's and early 90's coming out as a young guy–Alone, confused and scared in the height of the AIDS crisis. A time when so many of us witnessed (or know of) loved one who died with little dignity and very little support. Thankfully, today we have so much AIDS research, life saving medications, and many great organizations that have brought us closer to a cure from this horrible disease that took so many lives.
SO, while we are closer to a cure we are not done with the fight... I am asking you for some help for as little or as much as you are comfortable with donating.
Whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support.
*I've included information about SMART Ride below:
