► FIND A WALK IN YOUR STATE!
THE POWER OF THE WALK

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.
BE A TEAM CAPTAIN

This is your chance to change lives; this is your chance to be a team captain. Team captains serves the link between the Best Buddies organization and all potential walkers. Good team captains generate incredible power in numbers by motivating friends, family, coworkers, and others to be involved with their nearest Friendship Walk. We challenge you to become a team captain, rally your peers, and make a life-changing impact in the lives of a people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

"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 people, as friends."
