Newsletter: 2-11-2010: Special Olympics and Best Buddies

Special Olympics and Best Buddies cooperative effort for EKS Day

As Special Olympics CEO and Chairman, Tim Shriver, noted in his 19 January letter to SO Programs, 'like Special Olympics, Best Buddies occupied a place of great affection for his mother and the Shriver family asks that her memory be carried forth by both organizations." We are currently working with Best Buddies on activities for EKS Day to further the EKS legacy at all levels of the movement. As you begin to plan your local EKS Day activities, you can reach out to your local Best Buddies Chapter to share in the legacy. All Special Olympics Programs are welcome to participate in local EKS Days and are encouraged to look for opportunities of collaboration with the local Best Buddies Chapter to further strengthen the events in which will carry out the legacy of Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
