Join us as we walk in support of Best Buddies’ mission of inclusion.
9:30 AM – 12:30 PM | Brighton Amphitheater – The AMP
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.
Come see what Best Buddies Michigan is all about at The AMP in Brighton, Michigan on Saturday, May 15th! We will begin our time together with Opening Ceremonies to celebrate our mission of INCLUSION through highlighting our programs, as well as the top team, individual fundraiser, school, and sponsors. We will continue with music, games, and a walk around Downtown Brighton where you can spend your time at the local shops and restaurants with a coupon book full of discounts and free treats provided to you by Kara Huber via email the week of the walk! If you would like to participate from the comfort of your home, we will have virtual pieces shared through our Best Buddies Michigan Facebook page starting with Opening Ceremonies!
For sponsorship opportunities and other event inquiries, please contact: KaraHuber@bestbuddies.org.

Join us as we walk for 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.
