Mark Erson - Rider # 212
Smart Ride 18 is completed! And it was an amazing experience. A pop up community of caring was created. Friendships were made. And over 1.2 million dollars was raised.
With all that, how could I not sign up for Smart Ride 19 set for November 2022. I'm back on my bike. The training begins again.
I ride for my husband Scott and all those courageous ones who continue to live with HIV/AIDS.
I ride for those who are no longer with us. We will not forget you.
I ride for those who are being diagnosed and are feeling alone.
I ride for those who, with education, will stay safe and negative.
I ride for those who feel that they are in this challenge alone. You are not.
I ride because the organizations who are recipient of these funds raised are doing amazing work.
But that is only part of the preparation. To make the biggest impact, I need you to join me.
My bike and I will do the miles. You do your part and together we will be part of a great thing. Thank you for riding with me in spirit.
