Happy 101st birthday to the one and only Rosemary Kennedy! 🥳 Today, we honor the life of Rosemary Kennedy, one of the most inspirational figures in the disability rights movement. Her life inspired her sister, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, to start Special Olympics, and brought the conversation of how we support people with intellectual disabilities to the national stage via President John F. Kennedy. Rosemary also inspired Anthony K. Shriver, her nephew, to start Best Buddies in 1989, which impacts 1.2 million people around the world. Our movement of inclusion would not be the same without her.
Join us in celebration of Rosemary Kennedy by supporting Best Buddies International. Your contribution will make an impact and give more individuals like Rosemary the opportunity to enjoy meaningful friendships, gainful employment, become community leaders, and live independently. Link in bio ❤️

“I have supported Best Buddies for many years and when I found out that they were still growing in Ohio, I knew exactly how I wanted to plug in to my new home and show others the great work and mission of this organization. I hope by becoming a program participant myself that other Ohioans will join me in participating and supporting friendship, leadership, jobs, and inclusive living for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Ohio.” - @32double_d@reds
