Last month, one of our designers, Lori Brazier, and her husband participated in the Best Buddies Challenge: Hearst Castle – a bike, run, or walk event supporting Best Buddies programs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Best Buddies International is a nonprofit dedicated to providing opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. Through Best Buddies, hundreds of thousands of people with IDD have successfully moved from segregation and isolation to a new acceptance in their schools and community and workplaces around the globe. Founded in 1989 by Anthony Shriver, the Best Buddies community has grown from one college campus chapter to more than 1900 chapters internationally in the past 26 years and remains an important cause to the Shriver family– Anthony and Maria Shriver ride and host the event every year with support from the Hearst family. KKDL was proud to support Rob and Lori on their journey to raise awareness for a nonprofit close to our hearts and help cheer them to victory as they crossed the finish line nearly 30-miles later!
