SUNRISE, FLA. (WSVN) – Best Buddies is rolling out the bikes.
The nonprofit typically holds an annual friendship walk in dozens of cities across the country, including South Florida.
Now, they have formed a new cycle racing team to compete in elite races to raise funds and advocate for the inclusion and acceptance of people with intellectual and intellectual disabilities.
The team is made up of former national champions who are committed to donating all of their earnings to the cause.
“Participating in the Best Buddies run is going to be exciting for our mission, exciting for our buddies who participate, exciting for our runners to run for a cause,” said Anthony Shriver, Founder and President of Best Buddies. “I think that running for people with special abilities, there is nothing deeper, there is nothing more rewarding, there is nothing more fulfilling in life than giving back.
