Repost from @bestbuddies

Today we honor Rosemary Kennedy on what would have been her 103rd birthday. She inspired her nephew, our Founder, Chairman & CEO, Anthony Kennedy Shriver, with her “spirit, determination and smile—which never let up”. 
 
Thank you for inspiring a global movement, Rosemary, and Happy Birthday!

We couldn’t let another #TeamTuesday go by without a shout out to the team that has graciously hosted us for the last 17 years! Team Hearst always goes above and beyond to make sure our participants enjoy the Challenge. From the incredible views, to the delicious Finish Line barbecue, they make sure the Challenge is always five-star⭐️!

Not only are they amazing hosts, Team Hearst is closing in on $3 million raised for Best Buddies International programs! Without the generosity of Steve Hearst and support from his family and team, our programs would not be where they are today! #bestbuddieschallenge #inclusionliveshere #TeamTuesday
