Matthew Patterson - Rider # 400



I can see 20/20 a world free of HIV, and I want to help make that a reality, I have committed to do my part. On Friday November 20th, and Saturday November 21st I will join hundreds of other individuals who will ride their bicycles 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 17th year of The SMART Ride journey, I have set an ambitious goal to help raise more than $1,650 ($10 per mile) because I believe what we do makes a difference (and because 100% of the money you donate will go back to the community).

I am a client of Broward House and I want to do my part because they saved my life.  I was homeless, addicted to crystal meth, and hopeless.  The staff at Broward House loved me when I did not love myself.   They took me off the streets and taught me how to live again.  Today I am sober, happy, and undetectable.

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."
