Best Buddies Friendship Walk
ALBANY -- Sunday morning, many gathered to help support inclusion for those who have Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities at Best Buddies' Friendship Walk.
Since 2009, more than 24,000 participants have walked in over 22 states, and raised over 2 million dollars for Best Buddies. Proceeds from the walk play are to support funding Best Buddies' state programs which provide one-to-one friendships, leadership development and integrated job opportunities for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. These programs created promising opportunities for over 350,000 people this year.
