On Saturday, June 2, 2018 we will be participating in the Best Buddies Challenge: Hyannis Port – a bike, run or walk event supporting Best Buddies programs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

DONATE HERE

Why We’re Raising Money: Imagine waking up one day feeling sad and alone - finding yourself without friends or employment. For 200 million people worldwide with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), this is the daily reality of rejection and isolation people with IDD often face. Best Buddies International is the world’s largest nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation of people with IDD. Their programs help people with IDD form meaningful friendships with their peers, secure successful jobs, live independently, improve public speaking, self-advocacy and communication skills, and feel valued by society. Help us, help Best Buddies, by making a donation towards our event fundraising goal or register to ride, run or walk with us. Together we can build a more inclusive world!
