Started by Commonwealth royal Anthony Kennedy Shriver in 1989, Best Buddies is an international charitable organization that creates integrated employment and leadership development opportunities for people with intellectual and mental disabilities.
On June 4, Best Buddies will partner with Audi to present the Audi Best Buddies Challenge, a high-end fundraising event with all the gourmet trimmings. Munificent participants have the option of cycling from Boston to scenic Hyannis Port, or running 5K with former Olympic gold medalist Carl Lewis. (A slightly shorter, 3K walk is also available.) Those who make it to the finish line will reap the VIP rewards of a classic Cape Cod lobster bake, on-site masseuses, an exclusive concert from Top 40 crooner Natasha Bedingfield, and a private beach party with champagne aplenty.
Patriots quarterback and GQ cover boy Tom Brady will also be hosting a Best Buddies charity football game at Harvard Stadium the night prior to the challenge on Friday, June 3, with several celebrity friends. Ten VIP packages are available (a $25,000 fundraising commitment is required) that include one player entry to the flag football game, admission to the Friday night tailgate and Saturday beach party, a participant number for the walk/ride challenge, and two tickets to a reception at the famed Kenndy-Schriver Cape Cod compound on Saturday night.
