Best Buddies Friendship Walks

Best Buddies Friendship Walks

March 14, 2019

At ABLE United, we take pride in working with organizations, like Best Buddies Florida, that support our mission of helping individuals with disabilities Achieve a Better Life Experience. Represented in over 200 elementary, middle, high schools and college campuses across the state, Best Buddies programs enrich the lives of youth and adults with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).

Since 2009, more than 150,000 participants in 60 cities have walked to raise awareness for friendship, inclusion, and integrated job opportunities for those with IDD. Every dollar raised supports local Best Buddies programs, bringing the world one step closer to inclusion and acceptance.
The month of March officially kicks off the walks in Florida, and we’re excited to share that ABLE United brand ambassadors will be present at nearly every walk to answer questions and share why an ABLE account is right for you. Come visit us at one of our booths:
