THE POWER OF THE WALK
The Friendship Walk is the latest and greatest life-changing movement created by Best Buddies. Since 2009, more than 40,000 participants have walked in over 22 states, and raised over 3 million dollars for Best Buddies. Ultimately, the Friendship Walk changes lives, as participants walk for inclusion, friendship, leadership, and opportunity for people with and without Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD).
Over the years, our walks have made a profound impact in communities nationwide, especially for individuals with IDD. Every Friendship Walk promotes an atmosphere for new friendships, promising opportunities, and most of all, inclusion for all people. This is where you can make a difference! You can make new friends, create opportunity, and promote community inclusion simply by participating in this year's Friendship Walk. Walk for inclusion. Walk for friendship. Walk for a better community.
Proceeds from the walk play a fundamental part in funding our state programs which provide one-to-one friendships, leadership development and integrated job opportunities for individuals with IDD. These programs can be found in all 50 states and will create promising opportunities for over 350,000 people this year. None of this is possible without the help of generous donations from people like you. Thank you for considering a donation to Best Buddies. Your generosity will create life-changing possibilities.
