Team The Goonies - team # 1298

2021 is a world of possibilities, and we want to help make this the best year yet. Our name has changed, but our mission and commitment remain the same.  Our team, "The Goonies" is committed to moving the world closer to the end of the HIV pandemic by being part of this amazing event again this year. On Friday November 19th, and Saturday November 20th we will join hundreds of other individuals who will ride their bicycles from Miami to Key West - 165-miles. Our journey will be one filled with hope, pride, and  the dream of a future free of AIDS. This year will mark the 18th year of The SMART Ride journey, we have set an ambitious goal to help raise more than the required $1,250 per rider because we believe what we do makes a difference (and because 100% of the money you donate will go back to the community).

Each member of The Goonies has had our hearts broken as this virus has taken loved ones away from us in their prime.  We support our friends and chosen family who continue to fight this disease daily.  We look forward to the end of this pandemic which has plagued our entire adult lives.  We ride in honor, remembrance and hope.

The event guarantees that every penny that we raise (with your help) will be given to AIDS Service Organizations like Compass and directed to prevention, education and direct services. In 2020, when many non-profit organizations closed their doors, Compass built a health clinic to take caring for the community to a new level.  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. We hope you will consider joining us on this journey.

We share the words of Cindi Lauper, "I see your true colors, and that's why I love you."
