Best Buddies Friendship Walk

May 14 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am EDT

Gables UCC will have its own team walking in the Best Buddies Friendship Walk on Saturday, May 14. Church members Amber Thomassen and Wendy Long are the co-captains of our church’s team. All ages and abilities are invited to walk–whether you can walk a block or a mile–you are welcome and needed on our Gables UCC Team.

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). 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 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). 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.
