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.
1. Be sure you are registered for the Friendship Walk!
2. In the morning, walk in your own neighborhood and post a photo or video on BBWI social media pages (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, LinkedIn)
3. After your walk, and from the safety of your own vehicle, you can join us for a Drive Through Celebration! We will have different stops along the way where Volunteers will be there to decorate your car, take your group photo, challenge you to try a few games and top it all off with a scoop of Kopp’s Frozen Custard!
If plan to attend, sign up to reserve a time for your group here: Reserve Your Time
If you aren’t able to join us in person, join us on Facebook for the livestream starting at 10am – find us at @bestbuddieswi

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.
