Audi’s Best Buddies Challenge Helps to Change Lives

Audi returned for the fifth year as Title Sponsor of the Audi Best Buddies Challenge in Washington, D.C. on October 17th, 2014. More than 100 Audi employees participated in the festivities as part of Team Audi with the goal of funds to benefit Best Buddies International. This nonprofit is dedicated to creating opportunities for friendship, employment and leadership training for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The Best Buddies Challenge was open to participants of all ages and abilities.

Scott Keogh, President of Audi of America, served as Chairman of the Audi Best Buddies Challenge. Nearly 1,500 people participated in the 5K run/walk Carl Lewis Challenge or cycle 100-miles, 62-miles, or 20-miles. More than 800 students from local schools and colleges walked or ran in the 5K part of the race.

The rigorous 100-mile route was led by Tour de France cycling legend George Hincapie one of the most recognized cyclists in the world, who rode along the Potomac via scenic country roads. The Audi Best Buddies Challenge was capped off with tours of the historic Virginia governors mansion, a victory celebration at the Finish Line at Morven Park, and an award ceremony. Audi looks forward to next years event!
