Connecticut Hosts Its Most Successful Best Buddies Friendship Walk in State History
Best Buddies Connecticut (BBCT) hosted its biggest state fundraiser of the year at Quinnipiac University’s North Haven Campus (School of Health Sciences) on Sunday, November 8th. With over 1,000 participants, each had the chance to enjoy the many different aspects of the day.
We had our traditional Fall Festival, which included touch a truck, face painting, pumpkin bowling, just to name a few. We also had nine amazing raffle baskets that were of a $300 value or more and merchandise that was sold for everyone to buy! Our Best Buddies Friendship Walk was a mile long, with many cheering the Best Buddies song, walking for inclusion, and we even had some running it!
This year, we exceeded expectations with flying colors, fundraising over $95,000! This is the highest amount Best Buddies Connecticut has ever fundraised from the Friendship Walk to date. Thank you to all of our Sponsors, which included New York Life, Cheshire Marathon and 5k, Legrand, Bozzutto’s, and more. Please see event page for full sponsor list!
Thank you to all of our volunteers who came that day; BBCT couldn’t have had such a success without each and every one of you! A special shout out to Quinnipiac University for having over 200 volunteers that day.
