I just ran/walk a 5k for Best Buddies this past weekend. Best Buddies is a charity that helps people with intellectual disabilities. It was at a different location this year because of the government shutdown (it’s usually on the National Mall). So this year you had to do two laps to finish the 5k.
I had to watch two kids while doing the walk/run. That was not an easy job. One kept on running off and the other looks up to me so he stayed with me. After the 5k we saw Kevin Spacey, the Wolff Brothers, and Capital Cities sang.
They raised $2.5 million at the event. If you want to help raise money or you want to learn more go to www.bestbuddies.org.
