Best Buddies Spotlight
By Elizabeth Wolford
As you know, Best Buddies International is comprised of many state and international offices that manage the programs in their particular regions. Many of these offices host wonderful events throughout the year.
Best Buddies offices hold events for a variety of reasons. They can serve as a way to raise awareness and recruit new members, celebrate the current participants and friendships, or raise much-needed funds.
If you would like to know what events are taking place in your area, please contact your local Best Buddies office or visit www.bestbuddies.org. The Best Buddies International website will provide you with detailed information regarding all of the Best Buddies events happening throughout the United States.
One such Best Buddies event will take place on May 19th when riders will gather to participate in the Eighth Annual Volvo Best Buddies Challenge-Hyannis Port.
The Volvo Best Buddies Challenge-Hyannis Port is a premier fundraising bike ride offering participants an unforgettable cycling experience between the JFK Library in Boston and Hyannis Port.
100% of money raised by e-Buddies participants will fund e-Buddies! On your registration form, be sure to say that you were referred by "Lisa Derx," and that you found out about the Volvo Best Buddies Challenge-Hyannis Port from "e-Buddies E-mail."
For more information about the Hyannis Port Challenge or to join the ride for friendship, please visit: www.bestbuddies.org.
