Adviser Cares: Best Buddies Challenge

June 28, 2019

In addition to the ongoing contributions from our Volunteer Committee, Adviser Investments’ individual employees generously share their time, talent and treasure on their own time to help a wide range of worthy causes.

Recently, Account Manager Michael Russo rode in the Best Buddies Challenge–Hyannis Port, an annual cycling event that raises both money and awareness for Best Buddies International.

Best Buddies International is a non-profit dedicated to ending social, physical and economic isolation of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) through friendship, employment opportunities, leadership-skill development and inclusive, independent living.

On June 1, 2019, Michael cycled 100 miles from Boston to Hyannis Port, Massachusetts as a part of “The James Gang,” a group formed to honor a close family friend. Best Buddies has been a tremendous resource for James—a passionate and talented man whose family started this group to benefit those struggling with IDD.

With generous donations from his colleagues and a monetary contribution from the company, Michael’s effort in the Best Buddies Challenge helped raise more than $28,000. Adviser Investments is proud of our individual and collective commitment to community philanthropy and pleased to support these efforts in any way we can.
