Here’s what the Best Buddies Friendship Walk’s web site ( http://www.bestbuddies.org/) says:
The Best Buddies Friendship Walk is the latest and greatest life-changing movement created by the Best Buddies organization. Since 2009, more than 24,000 participants have walked in over 24 states, and raised over 2 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, promises opportunities, and most of all, inclusion for all people. This is where you can make a difference! You can make new friends, and promote community inclusion simply by participating in this year’s Friendship Walk. Walk for inclusion. Walk for friendship. Walk for a better community.
