Best Buddies Challenge

Best Buddies Challenge (Photo: Best Buddies International 2014)In September, myself and a team from VirtualPBX are taking up a rewarding and worthy challenge to ride, run, or walk down the California coast and fundraise for Best Buddies International Hearst Castle. I’ve been honored to participate in the annual event in the past and what a huge challenge it is!

The event raises vital funds for Best Buddies International – an independent, non-government organization working for a future without poverty. Founded in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver, Best Buddies has grown from one original chapter to more than 1,900 middle school, high school, and college campuses around the world. The programs engage participants in each of the 50 United States and on six continents, positively impacting 900,000
individuals each year.

Our team is hoping to raise over $10k to help Best Buddies International create opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are especially excited to participate alongside Best Buddies, it’s so rewarding to see the direct impact our actions make and to know that our fundraising can provide even more possibilities for these buddies, and those in need of support around the globe.

My team and I will be putting in the miles and hope that you can support us in this challenge. Please support us with a donation through our team page and by referring us to others.

You can make a secure, tax deductible donation through our team page here:
