Best Buddies Challenge 2020, here we come!

If you cycled, ran or walked with us in Hyannis Port earlier this month, you can remember the high of crossing the finish line. You can remember the cheering, meeting some of the buddies, the endorphins that flood your body, the medal around your neck that symbolizes the completion of your goals, the feeling that we’ve accomplished something amazing together. And, of course, the MTeam spirit. We welcome you all back for a repeat experience!

If you’re new to this, then you have a lot to look forward to when you become part of the MTeam community. We’re always here to answer questions if you’re still considering it, so just send us an email or reach out on social media. You can read more about the team on our blog and about page.

What happens when you join? 

  • You’ll receive a welcome pack from our team captain. It’s packed full of tips and resources that will help you meet your fundraising and training goals.

  • You’ll be invited to join the MTeam’s private Facebook community where team members can mingle, ask questions, get to know each other and share their experiences.

  • You’ll receive regular newsletters and communications from the team leaders and find daily updates on our social media, so you won’t feel like you’ve signed up for something and have been abandoned!

  • You’ll be invited to participate in various fundraising events we hold throughout the year, from spin-a-thons to our annual “sequins & fedoras”-themed spring gala casino night in our Boston headquarters.

  • You’ll receive the new, customized MTeam kit that we design differently each year (our 2019 kit won Best Design & Concept, so this is definitely something to look forward to!).

  • You’ll be able to meet Meredith and her family. Mer is the “M” in our MTeam and our Chief Motivating Officer who keeps us all going with her beautiful smiles.

  • You’ll be able to be involved in our efforts to advocate for inclusion for Mer and others who have intellectual and developmental disabilities. Last year we were able to donate some amazing technology to Mer’s school that is helping her and her classmates who were previously unable to communicate to do so through their eye movements. Life- changing stuff!

  • You’ll become part of a caring and supportive community.

There’s so much negativity in our world today, so make a decision to do something positive with us this year. Join us as we support the work of Best Buddies International and make a real impact for people who need love, support, friendship, job opportunities and the resources that will help them advocate for themselves and others.
