Joseph Coyne - Rider # 281

Dear Friends:

This will be the last time I grovel for donations for the Smart Ride. This will be their final ride. It has a been a blast participating in this bicycle ride for the last ten years to support patients living with HIV/AIDS. Last year I rode from New Orleans to Key West. I shall not be that ambitious this year. 

There are so many wonderful charities to choose from. I have chosen The SMART Ride (Southern Most AIDS/HIV Ride) because 100% of every dollar I raise will be shared with AIDS Service Organizations around Florida. Very few organizations can boast that they have this guarantee, in-fact it is unheard of in an event like this.

On Friday November 17th, and Saturday November 18th I will join the 20th Anniversary ride with 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, with memories, with pride, and with the dream of a future free of AIDS.

I have set an ambitious goal to help raise $2 Million this year, I personally want to do more than the required $1250 because I believe what we do makes a difference. Did you know that those being infected at the highest rate are ages 13-23, not a typo! Education, prevention, and care can make this disease a memory instead of a present-day reality. Nothing would give me more pleasure than to hang up my bicycle and know that the world is free of HIV and AIDS.

I hope you will consider joining me on this journey and make a generous donation.

Margaret Mead once said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world, indeed; it is the only thing that ever has." You are part of the change, thank you.
