The Best Buddies Friendship Walk (BBFW) is the number one walk in the country raising awareness and funds to support individuals with intellectual and development disabilities (IDD). BBFW plays a key role in funding Best Buddies programs dedicated to one-to-one friendships, leadership development, and integrated job opportunities for individuals with IDD.
The Best Buddies Friendship Walks provide an opportunities to see our mission in action at a local level.
Proceeds from the Best Buddies Friendship Walk provide the necessary tools for people with IDD to become more independent and valued members of our society. Since the Friendship Walk’s inception in 2009, more than 70,000 participants in over 26 states have walked to raise awareness for inclusion, friendship, leadership, and opportunity for people with IDD.
The Best Buddies Friendship Walks are an opportunity to engage and connect with your community, unite employees with a team building activity, market your goods and services to a loyal audience, and become part of a worldwide movement to create life-changing opportunities for people with IDD.
