SMART Ride 10 takes place November 15th-16th, 2013 and will travel 165 miles from Miami to Key West over the course of 2 days. The SMART Ride began as a dream to create a bicycle event where 100% of pledges raised could go back to the communities to be used for direct services. That was over nine years ago, and so far $4.2 million dollars have been raised. 100% has been given back to the communities we serve to assist with direct services for individuals infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. The ride is fully supported and designed to allow riders of all degrees of experience to participate.  100% of pledges raised by riders and participants are guaranteed to go to direct services with the benefiting agencies.

On SMART Ride 9 those involved in the ride broke fundraising records for our event, returning over $880,000 throughout the State of Florida. This year in our 10th, the goal is loftier and more aggressive, as we reach for and look to exceed $1 Million dollars. How can we raise so much money? It’s with your help, which means we need everyone’s help to reach our individual and organization fundraising goals. Remember, it takes all of us to make a difference, stop the spread of HIV/AIDS and put an end to this pandemic. Please consider making a charitable donation which is tax deductable using the rider links below:

Graduated from Penn State University in 1983 and landed my first broadcasting job at the flagship station to SUN Radio Network in St. Petersburg, FL as a producer of talk radio. In 3 months advanced to a network producer, then on air as a national eventually local weather reporter for the Tampa Bay area. Held a position in management as a trainer to new hosts and producers and later Affiliate Relations Manager, eventually in 1990 started hosting, Talkin' Pets. Left SUN radio several years later and worked with USA Radio Networks for 1 year. I worked with Business TalkRadio & Lifestyle TalkRadio Networks for19 years under the title of V.P. Affiliate Relations and Programming, later worked with Genesis Communications until starting a new network ATRN.  Currently working with GAB Radio Network and with Josh Leng at Talk Media Network.  I am still hosting the largest and longest running pet radio and internet show in the country, Talkin' Pets, for the past 29 years... My one true passion in life is to help to educate the world through interviews with celebrities like Betty White, Tippi Hedren, Bob Barker, Linda Blair and others, authors, foundations and organizations like the ASPCA, LCA, HSUS, AHA, WSPA on the ways to make this world a better place for all animals and mankind whom all share this very fragile and mysterious planet called earth. This is the only home we have so we all need to learn how to share and maintain it so that life for us all continues and evolves forever... | This email address is being protected from spambots.
