Personal life

Anthony Shriver comes from a prominent political family and he is often mentioned as a political candidate for elected office. Shriver - along with most members of the extended Kennedy family - is a part of the Democratic Party. In 2005, he considered running for Governor of Florida in the 2006 election. He was said to have considered a run for Governor of Florida in the 2010 election.[5]

Politics

In addition, Anthony and his brother Timothy (the Chairman of the Special Olympics) have recently joined forces and aligned Best Buddies and the Special Olympics, to create the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Challenge event, aimed to encourage greater acceptance and inclusion for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Shriver has also been a Director of UniCapital Corp. since March 1998. UniCapital Corp. is an investment house.[4]


Today, through Anthony’s stewardship and entrepreneurial spirit, Best Buddies has grown into a leading nonprofit entity with increasing international reach across six continents; establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

[3] Shriver spoke in 2008 about the all-inclusive nature of the program: "The great thing about Best Buddies is there’s something for everybody. You can be a volunteer in some shape, form or fashion, whether you’re volunteering to get your kids involved, whether your son or daughter is involved in their school program, whether you want to be a mentor yourself as an adult, whether you want to get an online Buddy, whether you’re an employer and want to hire someone with a disability to work in your office—if you’ve got any sense of motivation and determination and want to give back, there’s a role for you at Best Buddies, which I think is pretty unique. Even in Special Olympics, for most people, you can be a coach or a spectator, but you’re not going to run the 50-yard dash. In Best Buddies, you’re running the 50-yard dash with your Buddy. People get a different level of experience by participating, as opposed to writing a check, though that’s important, too. But beyond writing checks, we need people to get involved and give their time."[2] Shriver is the Founder and Chairman of
