Through nine-weeks of raising funds and awareness for Best Buddies, our Champions will generate countless opportunities for friendships, leadership development, and jobs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. At the campaign’s conclusion, we will join together at the Gala to celebrate each other’s accomplishments, honor the Champions’ collective impact, and name Ohio’s Grand Champion of the Year!

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.
