Our Champion of the Year candidates have a variety of personal and professional backgrounds, and we see new types of Champions every year! What brings them together is their compassion, motivation, and desire to make a difference in their community.
Know someone who might make a great Champion? Nominate them below, and a local Best Buddies staff member will connect with them to discuss the nomination! (P.S. don’t hesitate to nominate yourself either!)
We love the mission of Best Buddies and giving opportunities to people who otherwise might be isolated is a wonderful cause. We love it because we think everyone should have opportunities for friendships, social interaction, and employment. The money we were able to raise for Best Buddies will go toward continuing to provide these opportunities.– Tyler Corder, 2021 Best Buddies International Champion of the Year
