GPA paraprofessional Andre Callicutt recently completed a 100-mile bicycle ride, from the John F. Kennedy Library in Dorchester to Hyannis Port on Cape Cod, to raise funds for Best Buddies.

After his first year of working in a kindergarten inclusion classroom, Andre was inspired to support the program’s mission of providing mentors, employment opportunities and leadership development to students with disabilities. Through the sale of healthy snacks and donations from his friends and colleagues, Andre raised more than $1,500 for Best Buddies, and is still accepting donations.
