Lenny Chesal ITPalooza Band Leader Rides for charity
By Lenny Chesel, CMO and VP of Strategic Sales, Host.net. President of South Florida Technology Alliance
It isn’t often in life that one gets a chance to alter the status quo, to make a difference. This year I have taken on an exciting challenge, one that will not only change my life, but the lives of others in the State of Florida. Over the course of two days this coming November 16 & 17, I will ride my bicycle from Miami to Key West, 165 Miles and join hundreds working together to raise awareness and much needed funds to help those whose lives are touched by HIV/AIDS.
