I am riding on Team Tom Brady in the Best Buddies Challenge, a 100 mile bike ride to benefit Best Buddies International, the world’s largest organization committed to ending the economic, social and physical isolation of people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). They run school programs around the country (including here in Newton- at the middle and high schools), pairing typically developing students with students with IDD as “buddies” to promote friendship and mutual understanding. They also provide job training, occupational therapy and other skills training to promote the independence, self-advocacy, and abilities of people with IDD.
I was chosen to ride on Team Tom Brady, as I am riding in honor my 6 year old nephew, Sam who has Down Syndrome. The ride is on June 4th and I am trying to far exceed my fundraising minimum and raise as much as possible for this awesome organization. If you are able to share my event and fundraising link with the MS community, I’d be so very grateful!
Thank you so much!
