Champion of the Year unites and recognizes the community’s most active leaders in the name of inclusion.
Through 8 weeks of raising funds and awareness for Best Buddies, our Champions will generate countless opportunities for friendships, jobs, and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. At the campaign’s conclusion, we will join together to celebrate each other’s accomplishments, honor the Champions’ collective impact, and name the ultimate Champion of the Year!
South Florida, meet your 2018 Champions!
Get in on the fun!
Become a fundraising Champion or support a Champion by joining us for a celebratory gala benefiting Best Buddies. Along with food, drinks, silent auction, and live music, the evening will be filled friendship and celebration as we crown our Champion of the Year.
Supporting Local Programs
All funds raised benefit Best Buddies – 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.
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.Learn More
