What is Champion of the Year?

It’s a friendly(ish) fundraising competition between a group of champions.

Whoever raises the most money wins bragging rights and a boatload of prizes (maybe even a boat). 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?

Our champions are here to raise the funds needed so that everyone can have a best friend.
