THE POWER OF THE WALK

The Best Buddies Friendship Walk (BBFW) is a powerful social movement that supports inclusion and acceptance. Since 2009, more than 55,000 participants have walked in over 26 states, and raised over 5 million dollars for Best Buddies. 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. Every Friendship Walk promotes an atmosphere for new friendships and most of all, inclusion for all people. This is where you can make a difference! You can make new friends and promote inclusion 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 programs. These programs provide one to one friendships, leadership development, and integrated job opportunities for individuals with IDD and in all 50 states and in 50 countries around the world. Best Buddies positively impacts the lives of nearly 800,000 people with and without IDD.
BE A TEAM CAPTAIN

This is your chance to change lives; this is your chance to be a leader. Team captains serve as the link between the Best Buddies organization and walkers. Good team captains generate incredible power in numbers by motivating friends, family, coworkers, and others to be involved with their local Friendship Walk. Team captains lead their team, set goals that reflects their determination, and commitment to spreading the power of friendship. We challenge you to become a team captain, rally your peers, and make a life-changing impact for people with IDD.
