John Baumgartner - Crew # 2176

Hi friends, 
I will be supporting the SMART Ride this year as a crew member and really excited to be a part of this amazing journey. Every single dollar you donate will back to the community to help eradicate HIV and create a safer world for our children and, in particular, my own great nieces and nephews. I am so honored to work in an organization that helps those challenged by this disease to offer support and encouragement to create a life free of stigma and full of promise. I want to help make this the best year yet and have committed to do my part. I am looking forward to not just fundraising and helping change the face of HIV and AIDS but to be part of this amazing event this year. On Friday November 19th, and Saturday November 20th 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 18th 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). Will you please consider donating any amount that you can? $5, $10, $20 or more as every single dollar counts. 

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 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."
