Best Buddies Friendship Walk
Saturday, May 5 | 9:30a-12p
Located at Manpower Group Headquarters
Best Buddies is 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).
Their 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.
Here is an example of one of the relationships Best Buddies helps to create:
One of the BIG ways The Ridge wants to show support to the Special Needs community is by sponsoring a team at their annual Best Buddies Friendship Walk Saturday, May 5 at Manpower Group Headquarters in downtown Milwaukee.
Through this inclusive walk, Ridge families will have the exceptional opportunity to walk alongside the adults and children that Best Buddies serves. In addition, The Ridge is excited to be the presenting sponsor! This means any Ridge family can participate and walk for FREE on our team by signing-up HERE.
Check out this short video to see what happens:
Ridge families will walk for about 30 minutes with other Best Buddies, enjoy lunch, music, and fun activities. We hope to help raise awareness about the challenges the IDD community faces and help show how Best Buddies is actively solving them.
Anyone who donates $50 will also be given a Best Buddies t-shirt.
This will be an exciting event you won’t want to miss, and we hope to see you there!
