What is Champion of the Year?
It’s a friendly(ish) fundraising competition between a group of champions like you. Raise the most money = win bragging rights and a boatload of prizes.
The best part? All funds – 100% of them – go to Best Buddies in your community. If you’re not quite sure why that’s awesome, ponder this:
We all love our best friends, right? We talk on the phone, meet for coffee, catch a movie, crack corny jokes and eat too many nachos. In a nutshell, we do life together.
But not everyone has a best friend. People with intellectual and developmental disabilities can struggle to make connections on their own. The need for belonging is essential – without it, there’s nothing but loneliness and isolation.
Best Buddies is here to make sure everyone has a sidekick. Someone who knows your favorite ice cream flavor, surprises you on your birthday, picks you up when you’re down, and knows what makes you amazing.
After all, isn’t that what we all want? But this can’t happen without you. Be a Champion for Best Buddies.
