Best Buddies Inagural Friendship Walk this Saturday!

Best Buddies Jacksonville will host its inaugural Friendship Walk, a Walk-a-Thon and Friendship Festival, featuring carnival-style festivities, delicious food, and entertainment on Saturday, April 16th from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at the University of North Florida Amphitheater.  

With more than 49.7 million Americans are living with an intellectual disability, it’s critical to bring the entire community together in order to educate in a fun and creative way. Prizes will be awarded to individuals and teams who raise the most money, as opposed to who comes in first at the walk.

Friendship Walk is a community-wide event which brings together Best Buddies participants. Held in conjunction with Best Buddies Awareness Month, this event raises both funds and awareness for Best Buddies.  Registration for the Friendship Walk is free, but participants are encouraged to raise money to receive incentive prizes such as bracelets, shirts, food and more.

For more information, sponsorship opportunities or media inquiries, please contact Mary White at (904) 296-0510 ext 402 or via e-mail at MaryWhite@bestbuddies.org.  Event information can be found at www.bestbuddiesflorida.org/jaxwalk.
