Race to the Finish Line with Best Buddies

A fun-filled day with Best Buddies is arriving soon, and they hope to see everyone there. Woodland Best Buddies created a team for the Cheshire 5k and Half-Marathon and is looking for students and faculty to join the team.

The team is open for anyone to join to support the buddies and create an unforgettable experience for the group. Runners can register for the race on the Team Best Buddies website to run in either a 5k or half-marathon on Sunday, April 28.

Those who do not wish to participate by running can consider a small donation that will directly benefit Woodland students, as well as other Best Buddies groups across the state. Donations can be submitted on the Team Best Buddies website.

Through the donations, the buddies will be able to participate in events to improve their leadership and communication skills. The buddies look forward to participating in a leadership conference. The donations will also help to support the buddies at their monthly meetings.

“Everyone can feel free to stop by our booth to support Woodland’s Best Buddies team,” says Best Buddies advisor George Meyers. “It will be a great Sunday morning for everyone.”

They hope to see tons of friendly faces at the race, cheering for the runners or running alongside them.
