BENEFITING: Best Buddies International, Inc.
EVENT DATE: May 19, 2013
Since the first Friendship Walk in 2009, they have become an integral part of the Best Buddies annual calendar. Our walks not only raise essential funds for our local offices that directly impact the strength of our programs, but also provide a powerful public awareness event.
Each walk affords us the opportunity to celebrate the importance of the Best Buddies mission, educate the public on the need for social inclusion, and empower people with IDD to become leaders within their community.
In 2011 alone, over 9,000 walkers collected over $750,000 for their local Best Buddies offices.
Lead by example, become a participant, team captain, or a sponsor and learn more about our cause while teaching others the benefits of inclusion.
"Best Buddies is an amazing organization that is meant to change the lives of individuals with disabilities every day. It is easy to say that we made a difference in our buddies' lives, but the real outcome is how they change us, as leaders, as peoples, as friends." - Rachel Johnson, Eastern Illinois University
