Best Buddies Spotlight

On September 12th, 2009, Best Buddies International will hold the sixth annual Audi Best Buddies Challenge-Hearst Castle. This is a truly unique five-star event that fosters friendship, teamwork and the inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities. On this day, celebrities, athletes, individuals with intellectual disabilities, and people just like you, will take the challenge, and come together on bike and on foot to make a difference and change lives.

Cyclists can choose from four options for distance: 100 Miles, 62 Miles, 35 Miles or 15 Miles. No matter the distance, riders will enjoy magnificent views biking along the Pacific Coast Highway route, fully supported from Carmel all the way to San Simeon.

For those who do not wish to ride, they can still participate in the fun at our 5k run and 3k walk led by Olympic gold medalist Carl Lewis at the finish area alongside the beach in San Simeon! This is open to all ages and abilities.

After finishing, every rider will enjoy food, drinks, hot showers and professional massages before heading over to the Hearst Ranch for the post-ride celebrations. Those special celebrations include a gourmet barbecue with special entertainment by Ciara!

All of the money raised will support Best Buddies in their efforts to enhance the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities by providing opportunities for one-to-one friendships and employment.
