WHY: The 165 mile bicycle ride from Miami to Key West raises awareness and money for HIV/AIDS agencies in Florida. As a benefiting agency, CAP will receive a shared portion of funds raised, plus whatever funds are designated for CAP by riders and crew. 100% of funds raised goes to HIV/AIDS services organizations. Last year CAP received more than $109,000 from the SMART Ride as a benefiting agency. The funds are used for case management, food, emergency services, and a drop-in program at CAP.
CAP provides and promotes education, advocacy and compassion to individuals and families infected and affected by HIV and AIDS through case management, prevention and other support services. CAP works throughout Palm Beach County to provide housing assistance, food, transportation, mental health counseling and emergency assistance.
Since its inception in 1985, CAP has provided educational services to more than 250,000 people in a variety of settings, including prisons, county schools, on the streets in high-risk neighborhoods, in health settings, substance abuse treatment centers, methadone clinics and others. The local organization has grown into one of the most successful community-based HIV/AIDS service organizations in the nation.
