On Saturday May 5, 2018 members of Best Buddies participated in the Best Buddies Friendship Walk. It was held at the University of Maryland Xfinity Center Pavillion. The walk will began at 10 am and the celebration lasted until 1 pm. This event was meant to raise money and awareness for the social inclusion of individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. The organization went above and beyond by achieving their goal of raising $260,000. It was a great opportunity for local Best Buddy members to interact with one another. Members that raised a minimum amount of $50 earned a Friendship Walk shirt. There were 133 registered teams and over 1,500 walkers. The day was filled with fun, dance, laughter, and friendship.
