Best Buddies Friendship Walk
April 17, 9am-11am
Miromar Outlets, in the parking lot closest to Playland that’s visible from I-75
Instead of walking, this year’s Walk will be a drive-thru CARE-a-van so everyone stays in their cars. Stations on pre-marked route. Volunteers will be masked, gloved and hand sanitizer will be available.
Instead of walking, this year friends of Best Buddies will drive the route marked at Miromar Outlets that will be complete with cheerleaders, decorations, jammin’ tunes from either Sunny 106.3 or B103.9, ready-to-go food and beverages, and take-home Friendship Walk favors.
Best Buddies is the largest organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation of people living with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Friendship Walk supports the programs in the Southwest Florida area. There are currently 26 school chapters ranging from elementary to college, in addition to the Citizens program for adults and the Ambassador program that teaches public speaking skills.
There is no charge to participate in the Friendship Walk. Registered walkers receive their own fundraising page to personalize, sharing why they are walking for inclusion. Everyone raising $50 will get an event t-shirt. Other give-aways will also be available throughout the campaign.
