The Best Buddies Friendship Walk is the leading walk in the country supporting inclusion for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (also known as IDD).
Join 40,000 walkers across the country to support the Best Buddies programs in your schools, workplaces and communities. You’ll be making the world more welcoming to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities – one friendship, one job, and one life-changing connection at a time.
Berkeley Lake Park – Come experience the magic of the Best Buddies mission at our Friendship Walk event any time between 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM. The full experience can be completed in under an hour, with all the recommended and required COVID-19 guidelines in place. Safety is our number one priority so with this “rolling” event model we hope to eliminate large crowds gathering at certain times.
At Home – If you prefer to join us on Walk day from your own neighborhood or backyard, we invite you to tune into our livestream on Facebook Live, snap a picture while you are out walking and tag @bestbuddiesco so we can see how you are celebrating inclusion from home! No matter where you walk, you are creating a more inclusive world for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities by supporting the Best Buddies mission!

Let’s change the world for people with intellectual & developmental disabilities.
It’s much more than a walk, it’s a party!
Funds raised through the Friendship Walk benefits Best Buddies – the world’s largest organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation of the 200 million people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Our programs empower the special abilities of people with IDD by helping them form meaningful friendships with their peers, secure successful jobs, live independently, improve public speaking, self-advocacy and communication skills, and feel valued by society.
The IDD community that Best Buddies serves includes, but is not limited to, people with Down Syndrome, Autism, Fragile X, Williams Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, traumatic brain injury and other undiagnosed disabilities.
