The SMART Ride

 SR12_Vector_Wheel_LogoSMART Ride is unique to fundraising in so many ways, but first and foremost it’s our guarantee that 100% of every penny you raise will go to AIDS Service Organizations around Florida. Since 2003 that has represented over $6.4 million dollars, that’s more than a little impressive and something every past and present participant should be very proud of.

SMART Ride starts on Thursday November 12th with orientation day in Miami. On Friday NovembeR-6 Detailsr 13th the ride opens with an escorted ride out and then travels south 100 miles to Duck Key where we overnight.

On Saturday November 14th our journey continues, passing over bridges, stopping at pit stops, enjoying lunch and finally arriving 65 miles later in Key West to cheers and smiling faces.

We celebrate first at the AIDS Memorial at the White Street Pier and then throughout the evening with parties to recognize the collaborative effort of each participant. You don’t have to be an athlete to participate, DSC_0726you can ride a bike, or help drive a vehicle, you can bring your skills as a massage therapists, a nurse, or doctor, you can be a cheerleader or a an individual with just a desire to make a difference. Whatever your reason for joining this adventure we welcome you.

Won’t you join us? Register before October and your registration fee is only $95 and it covers your food,  your overnight housing in the middle keys and memories that are priceless. Questions, just reach out, we are here to help.
