Providing friendship, jobs and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities is the mission of Best Buddies International. Since 2007, Audi has been honored to be the exclusive automotive sponsor and official vehicle of the non-profit organization founded by Anthony Kennedy Shriver.
