Dear Friends,

Autumn has arrived here in Washington, DC - my favorite time of year! And just as the weather is starting to get cooler, things are beginning to heat up for Best Buddies.

Those of us here in DC are very excited for October 22, when our hometown will be hosting the Audi Best Buddies Challenge: Nation's Capital, one of the major national fundraisers for Best Buddies this year. It is going to be a blast! The event features a breathtaking bike ride through the city and among the national monuments, as well as celebrity tandem bike races and a series of 5K walk/run events. Participants are then treated to a concert and gourmet luncheon right on the National Mall. It's a fantastic event, and we hope to see some of you out there! For more information on this event, as well as other great events taking place across the country, please check out the Best Buddies Spotlight article.

Additionally, after a hugely successful first round in the spring, it's time for another round of Buddy Talent! Starting on October 3, contestants are invited to submit videos of performances that highlight their unique talents. The winners of this contest will be eligible for the chance to perform at a national Best Buddies event! For more information and to share your talent, please visit www.bestbuddies.org/buddytalent.

Also in this edition of the e-Beat:

  • We have not one but TWO great e-Buddies of the Moment articles for you
  • Check out e-Buddies in Action to learn about one of our great e-Buddies groups
  • Don't snooze on a great field update from our friends at Best Buddies Nevada
That's all for now. See you in the winter, everybody!

In friendship,
Bill Maurer
