Kevin Thomas - Rider # 224

2021 is a world of possibilities, and I want to help make this the best year yet. I have committed to do my part and 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).

Just like Covid, HIV//AIDS has likely affected someone close or someone you know. I first signed up to do this ride in 2014, 25 years in commemoration of its early beginnings. Unfortunately, my own issues with a cancer diagnosis and treatment kept me from fulfilling that desire. Fast forward 5 years to 2019, as a 30 year mark, those plans were dashed by the emotional drain of two deaths in my family. 

We all know 2020 was a wash so in 2021,  AIN'T NO STOPPING ME NOW !!!

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.

This event is unlike other similar type events. It’s the second largest AIDS bicycle ride in the country and the only one of its size to guarantee that 100% of the funds raised will go back to the benefiting agencies. I hope you will consider joining me on this journey.

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."

If I can get FIFTY (50) people to donate a mere $25.00, I can reach my goal.  That is not much to help save someone or give them a better day.
