The Best Buddies Friendship Walk is the number one walk in the country raising awareness and funds to support inclusion for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). It helps to grow our local Best Buddies programs dedicated to one-to-one friendships, leadership development, integrated employment, and inclusive living opportunities for individuals with IDD.
Best Buddies International is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development, and inclusive living for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). During the Friendship Walk you can also expect to dance, laugh, smile and make a new friend. It will be one big party! Every walk is the chance to show our communities how far we’ve come. It’s also the perfect way to celebrate the abilities and uniqueness within all of us.
