Jana Jaffe - Rider # 11
This year, the 20th anniversary of the
SMART Ride, will be my 7th year cycling 165 miles in the SMART Ride (Southern Most AIDS/HIV Ride). The SMART Ride is very special to me. In 2017, after accepting a clinical position at Broward House, Inc, one of the benefitting agencies in this event, I volunteered to cycle 165 miles from Miami to Key West. In 2018, I proposed to Julia at the end of the 165 miles. In 2020 I was asked to change my role at Broward House to the "Community Relations and Events Manager". This ride is now my "baby" which is fitting because of my love for the event.
I love this event because 100% of every dollar raised will be
shared with 6 AIDS Service organizations around Florida, and specifically,
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. I cannot even think of a single fundraiser for cancer that does this, it is unheard of in an event like this.
On Friday November 17th, and Saturday
November 18th 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, with memories, with pride,
and with the dream of a future free of AIDS.
We have set a collective goal to help raise $2
Million this year, I personally want to raise $5,000 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!
Thank you for supporting me and being at part of the change!
<3 With Love- Jana
