WABA Partnered Event
Eunice Kennedy Shriver Challenge
Saturday, October 23, 2010
On October 23, Eunice Kennedy Shriver's legacy will be commemorated by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Challenge: a 20-mile bike ride, 5K run, 3K walk, Youth Fun Run, and a series of Criterium Friendship Races all hosted on the National Mall. In addition to friends and admirers of Mrs. Shriver, hundreds of Best Buddies participants and Special Olympics athletes are expected to take part in this recreational event that will celebrate Mrs. Shriver's love of sports and friendship. The day will conclude with an awards celebration and private luncheon at the foot of the Washington Monument.
Mrs. Shriver had one vision - to show the world that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) could achieve and thrive in society. Her vision and legacy live on through two organizations - Best Buddies and Special Olympics. To further ensure Mrs. Shriver's legacy lives on, Best Buddies and Special Olympics are partnering in 2010 on an event in the nation's capital, the inaugural Eunice Kennedy Shriver Challenge sponsored by Audi. Through this event, the two movements will build more communities of inclusion.
