Independent pharmacy reaches out to the community one ride at a time

Benzer Pharmacy is joining the Florida community through SMARTRide to raise funds and awareness about HIV/AIDS from November 13-14, 2015.

SMARTRide is a two day ride, 165-mile from Miami to Key west. The aim of the event is to raise money for HIV support services.

Up to 10% of all funds are  put in a pool to be given out at 100%. This money is earmarked principally for additional agencies around the state that have needs that are currently not being met through other funding sources.

The remainder of the funds are divided as follows:50% is divided amongst all the benefiting agencies, 50% the riders decide how much and to which agency(s) the money goes (choosing from the agencies benefiting). All benefiting agencies will earmark the money toward direct services and education including: pharmaceutical care, residential assistance, psycho social services, dental care, holistic care, housing, medical care, prenatal and child care, and prevention & education.

“AIDS continues to take too many lives annually, and although in many cases the disease has become somewhat manageable, no one should contract HIV/AIDS in this day and age, but yet people do,” states Glen Weinzimer, SMART Ride founder.

SMART Ride started with a small group of thoughtful committed individuals on a mission to change the world in a small way. Over $6.4 million has been raised for HIV/AIDS support services since 2003.

“Benzer Pharmacy is helping those already living with HIV & AIDS live healthier more fulfilled lives by providing the basics to long term survival,” says Igor Spasojevic, Marketing Specialist at Benzer Pharmacy in Orlando.

Benzer Pharmacy is offering complete specialty pharmacy services for patients with complex diseases & chronic conditions requiring advanced drug therapies, injectable medications and more complicated treatment regimens.

SMART Ride starts on Thursday November 12th with orientation day in Miami. On Friday November 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 the 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.
