Jana Jaffe - Rider # 11
Dear Friends & Family:
Thank you for visiting my page. This year will be my 7th year participating in the SMART Ride! 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, such as the organization I work for, Broward House, Inc. 100% of all rider donations will be donated to the organization and used for client services. Not a penny will go to salaries or anything other than client care. 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 will just have to find another reason to ride! :)
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."
Thank you for being a part of the change!
With Much Love and Gratitude,
