Best Buddies International is a nonprofit organization dedicated to establishing a volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and
leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The Real Ultimate Champions
The defining characteristic of an ultimate champion is someone who doesn’t let their physical or mental challenges keep them from enjoying life. We all have challenges, but Best Buddies proves that through helping others overcome their challenges, we actually strengthen ourselves.
Enduring, overcoming and improving are values that DriveTime shares with Best Buddies, which is why we chose to sponsor this year’s Phoenix Dizzy.
The Phoenix Dizzy
The Phoenix Dizzy 250 Ultimate Endurance Challenge is a series of three races where runners, cyclists and duathletes compete for the overall title of “The Ultimate Endurance Champion”. This event will be both competitive and extremely fun as we mix multiple events all under the same venue!
The cycling event is 250 miles total distance, Ultra Run is 100 Miles, and the Duathlon will cover 200 miles. The event will take place on the WildHorse Raceway Race Track. The track is 3.5 miles in distance and the run will cover the same loop (Dizzy, get it?).
The first team or individual to complete the set distance first will end the event for all categories and all races. All individuals and teams will then complete the final lap they are on and finish in that current standing. Not everyone has to compete, but everyone is invited to come have fun and support the athletes!
Teams of 1-10 people are invited to compete, and there is no pressure to finish. Come in costume, bring your beach cruiser and help cheer on the champions on December 10 at the Wild Horse Raceway.
