Kevin Thomas - Rider # 173

Dear Friends:

I want to again thank the wonderful friends and associates that have donated to the cause in the past and am once again asking for your support for this worthy cause.

The fight against AIDS is not over. Even with full insurance covering the majority of the $3,500 - $4,500 monthly medication costs, a patient can still be saddled with co-payments of several hundred dollars per month. 

As a nurse, in this day and age, incredibly I still saw other nurses reluctant to take and lovingly care for HIV patients, whom were often referred to as the "High Five" patient (Hi and the roman numeral V for 5 ).

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 hope you will consider joining me on this journey by making make a generous TAX DEDUCTIBLE 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.
