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.

A DOG NAMED CHRISTMAS
Hallmark Channel
US Cable Television Premiere
From the Hallmark Hall of Fame Collection
Sunday, November 20 (6 p.m. ET/PT, 5C) 

The ever-versatile Bruce Greenwood (“John From Cincinnati,” “Knots Landing”) stars in this heartwarming Hallmark Hall of Fame story about coming to terms with the past and the ways that Christmas can help to bring a family together.  Greenwood is George McCray, who lives on a Kansas farm with wife Mary Ann (Linda Emond, “Julie and Julia”) and their 20-year-old, developmentally-challenged son, Todd (Noel Fisher from “The Riches”).  It happens that a local animal shelter is looking for families to foster pets for the holidays, and Todd wants one desperately.  But George is dead-set against it, maintaining that his son won't be able to adequately care for a pet and that giving a dog back after Christmas will only traumatize him.  But we learn that the real reason why George opposes it has more to do with his own bad experiences with dogs in the past -- once while he was a kid, the other time when he was serving in Vietnam.  So it's really George with the issues surrounding canines.  And as his wife comes to realize, the one who really needs a dog this Christmas is her husband, not her son, in order for emotional wounds of the past to heal.  “A Dog Named Christmas” is the best kind of holiday tale, one that poignantly illustrates the unwavering resilience of the human spirit.
