BENEFITING: Best Buddies International, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Best Buddies
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
On April 17th, I will be running the 121st Boston Marathon in support of Best Buddies Boston. As you may know my son, Leo, has autism. I chose to run in honor of him and many other kids struggeling with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
Best Buddies is the world’s largest organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation of the 200 million people with IDD. For individuals within this community, Best Buddies helps them form meaningful friendships with their peers, secure successful jobs, live independently, improve public speaking, self-advocacy and communications skills, and feel valued by society.
