Frequently Asked Questions
Is the Friendship Walk still happening in 2020?
Yes! The Best Buddies Friendship Walk is simply going VIRTUAL!
What is a Virtual Walk?
The Best Buddies Virtual Friendship Walk is a chance for you and your closest friends, family and co-workers to join us online as we celebrate our fundraising efforts to sustain and grow our programs locally.
How can I get involved with the Virtual Walk?
Anyone, from any part of the U.S. (or world for that fact) can join us as we virtually walk for the Best Buddies mission. Register for a walk in your area and create your fundraising page. Our goal is to raise money so we sustain the current programs we offer in the local area – and expand our programs to create a better world for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Is the Friendship Walk T-shirt available for purchase?
The official Best Buddies Friendship Walk T-shirt is a badge of honor, so to speak, and is only given in recognition to walkers that raise $50 or more. (And how awesome would that be if EVERY registered walker earned one? Let’s make that happen!)
I made a $50 donation to my child’s fundraising page – will I get a T-shirt?
Thank you! Your donation will count towards your child’s fundraising total so he/she will be the one who earns the T-shirt. (But maybe your generosity will earn you Parent-of-the-Year!)
I would like to learn about sponsorship opportunities. How do I get in touch with someone?
Great, thanks for the interest! Please contact us at the bottom of our homepage here.
