North Jersey Walk Cancelled:
Important message from Best Buddies: We thank you all so much for your dedication and support of this year’s Friendship Walk! Unfortunately, due to inclement weather conditions, tomorrow’s event is being postponed.
With that said, we invite everyone to come down to TCNJ on Saturday, April 23rd, to celebrate your efforts for friendship and inclusion here in New Jersey!
Thank you for your understanding and passion for our mission. We hope to see you on 4/23!
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.
In addition to the walk itself, there will be fun inflatables, carnival food, carnival games, and a live music performance by the Epic Soul Band.
For sponsorship opportunities and other event inquiries, please contact: MatthewFernandes@bestbuddies.org.
Thank you for participating in this year’s Friendship Walk! Because of you, we were able to raise funds to sustain and help expand our Best Buddies programs in the area. We look forward to having you at next year’s event. With your help and support, our mission of inclusion lives on!
Supporting Local Programs
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.
We Love Our Sponsors!
