***The use of the R-word is hurtful and demeaning to people with intellectual disabilities. Join us in eliminating the use of the words "retard" or "retarded" and support the Manhasset Best Buddies Chapter! Spread the Word to End the Word is a campaign to raise awareness of the hurtful effects of the word "retard(ed)" and encourages people to pledge to stop using it. A National Awareness Day will be held, tomorrow, March 31, 2017. We ask that you take the pledge for $1 by signing your name on a puzzle piece that will be displayed on a banner outside of the SPA. All proceeds will go to the Best Buddies Manhasset Chapter! You can make your pledge outside of the SPA between periods 2-8!
Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership!
