Robert Jensen - Rider # 243
Hello Family & Friends,
On Friday 20 Nov and Saturday 21 Nov, I will join hundreds of other individuals who will ride their bicycles or crew from Miami to Key West. A beautiful165-miles ride! A journey filled with hope, filled with pride, and filled with the dream of a future free of HIV & AIDS. As we work our way to the future, there a people who need help. People living with HIV & AIDS. People who care for them. Youth forced from their homes. Youth looking for a safe space. There are also those that are very sick with other illnesses and need help.
This is my first year on the ride, and 17th year of The SMART Ride. 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 Florida community). I have chosen to designate any donation made in my name to - http://www.ahmonroe.org/ ; https://pridelines.org/who-we-are; https://www.browardhealth.org/locations/childrens-diagnostic-and-treatment-center; https://compassglcc.com/; https://www.browardhouse.org/;
The event guarantees that every dollar we raise is given to HIV & 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.
