Event Postponement Notice:
Best Buddies looks forward to coming together as a community in support of our mission at the South Florida Friendship Walk. With the safety and well-being of our program participants and supporters being a priority above all else, we will be postponing the event at Maurice A. Ferre Park and will instead celebrate virtually on March 14th.
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.Learn More
