May’d Ya Look
The month of May was busy with events and awareness initiatives. On Mother’s Day, Best Buddies Missouri was the beneficiary of the All Community Events Mother’s Day 5K & 10K at Forest Park. Mom’s were celebrated all morning and rewarded with a colorful rose and delicious cake pop as they crossed the finish line.
On Sunday, May 15, The Wood Cask in Kirkwood, Missouri hosted Bags for Best Buddies: A Cornhole Tournament. Over 100 spectators and players gathered on a beautiful sunny afternoon to raise funds and build awareness of the Best Buddies Mission. We even met two Friendship Chapter members from Best Buddies Peru, who were visiting St. Louis from Springfield, Missouri where their family recently moved to. It’s so inspiring to experience the global movement for social inclusion in person.
Together these two events raised just over $3,000 for Best Buddies Missouri programs. We are grateful for the generous support from donors, volunteers and sponsors who made these events successful.
