A HUGE thank you to everyone who participated in and donated to the Best Buddies Friendship Walk. Our community outreach committee is so proud to announce that our CREW chapter was in the top 15 fundraising teams with a total donation of $580. In total, the Best Buddies Friendship Walk raised an impressive $51,814! A portion of these funds will support the Best Buddies Jobs program, which helps its participants develop their professional work skills and play an integral role in the organization’s corporate partners’ success.
In addition to raising funds, the support of friendship and inclusion that our CREW walked for will continue to make an impact. We were able to create meaningful experiences for Best Buddies participants. We were able to expand the movement of creating strong leaders within the intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) community who will advocate for their peers. And most importantly, we were able to laugh and celebrate life with them! So thank you to everyone who contributed and participated—the impact you are making is huge! You are changing the world – one friendship, one job and one leadership development opportunity at a time. And for those that couldn’t join this year… we hope to see you next year!
Please note: we will be holding our drawing for the date night basket at our May luncheon on May 3rd at the Las Vegas Country Club.
