Best Buddies International and the Hanson family announced that the Tom Brady Touchdown Challenge has been extended through the postseason.

Just as in the regular season, the Hansons pledge $1,000 to the organization for every touchdown thrown by Brady and they encourage others to do the same by visiting the website here.

Each participant who pledges $250 or more per postseason touchdown will be eligible to get his or her photo taken with Brady during the Audi Best Buddies Challenge: Hyannis Port on June 4.

“Best Buddies is an amazing organization that - through the simple act of friendship - is helping to reshape the way people see their peers with intellectual and developmental disabilities,” Brady said in a press release. “It is an honor to be able to help the Hansons raise awareness and funds to support this cause, and I hope that their incredible generosity will motivate other fans to join us in the Touchdown Challenge.”
