THE STORY:

My name is Rebecca Miller, on May 31, 2014, I am riding in my 3rd Best Buddies Hyannis Port Challenge! It will be the 15th Anniversary of this great event!

I have raised over $3,000 for programs that help develop 1:1 friendships in Middle or High Schools, Colleges and through email programs in 50 States and 50 Countries. They also have Jobs Programs and Leadership Programs to help students learn to speak about IDD and to Lead Programs.

As a member of The Nauset Best Buddies Club at my High School, we get together with students with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD), during and after school, as well as outside of school to laugh and have fun. We have gone to the park to fly kites, bowling, bike riding, shopping, to dances and the movies.

Being a part of my club has taught me that having IDD, just means that someone has something that is a challenge for them. They have many of the same likes and dislikes as we do. We are all unique. I certainly have things in my life, that are challenges for me.

My buddy Oliver and I enjoy sports so we connect about that stuff. Oliver is very supportive and kind. He is a friend to many at our school. I was lucky to add him to my list of friends this year. We became such great friends that we participated in this event together (he volunteered at the finish and I rode), we also attended his prom together. He graduated and has gone on to a GROW program, but we will remain friends.

This past summer, I had the great priviledge of attending the Best Buddies Leadership Conference, I was very inspired during my 4 day conference at Indiana University. I can't wait to share my experiences with my friends at Nauset. If you haven't learned about Best Buddies, you should! It changed my life for the better!

Please consider donating to my ride to help continue programs like mine at the High School. If you are so inspired.. join my team - Nauset Warriors.
