Nancy O'Dell and Maria Shriver Help Best Buddies


ET's Nancy O'Dell is reaching out to help her friend Maria Shriver with a fundraiser for a charitable organization close to both of their hearts: Best Buddies.

Best Buddies is an organization started by Maria Shriver's brother Anthony and empowers people with intellectual disabilities to find jobs and pairing them with friends so they don't live isolated lives.

The fundraiser benefits Team Maria, Shriver's group of bike riders that will take part in a bike ride from Carmel, CA to Hearst Castle on September 10, 2011.
