Eunice Kennedy Shriver Challenge

Best Buddies and Special Olympics are excited to announce the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Challenge will be taking place this October in Washington, DC. Eunice Kennedy Shriver was a great advocate for social inclusion for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This event will pay tribute to the vision, commitment and achievements of Mrs. Shriver. You can bike, run or walk to show your support of Best Buddies and Special Olympics.

One of the first steps to changing a community is creating awareness. When hundreds of people come together for a cause, the community notices. On October 23rd, Best Buddies and Special Olympics participants and supporters will come together to fundraise and promote friendships, jobs and sports for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. And what better place to do it than our Nation’s Capital?

Washington, DC is also the home of the e-Buddies office. e-Buddies staff will be participating in this challenge to show our support of our friends in e-Buddies—that’s you!
