Mission: To establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friends, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectually and developmental disabilities.
Key Campaigns: Best Buddies Annual Friendship Walks — These walks take place in the city and suburbs of Chicago typically in April. The event is open to the public, and walkers and donors do not need to be Best Buddies members. The event is free, but those who donate $50 will receive the official walk T-shirt.
