Are you a TEAM MARIA Alumni?
I have been a Team Maria alumni for one year and did the 35 mile leg.

Why did you join TEAM MARIA?
I work in the Governor’s mailroom and I wanted to ride with Maria Shriver. It sounded like fun.

Why is the Best Buddies program, and its mission, so important to you?
Sometimes people need help making friends and finding jobs. Work is good. Friends are better.

What motivates you to participate in the Audi Best Buddies Challenge: Hearst Castle?
I love my job at the Capitol. I first got my job through the Schwarzenegger/Shriver administration WE Include/Best Buddies program.

What was your favorite part of the event last year?
Doing the ride with my Dad. We rode a tandem bike together.

What would you say to get someone to participate in the Audi Best Buddies Challenge?
You can do the ride. There are some big hills on the 35 mile ride. The barbeque and concert party is so much fun.

What is the URL to your personal TEAM MARIA fundraising page?

Anything else you would like to share?
I love Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
