Buffalo State Best Buddies Raises More than $4,400
The Buffalo State Best Buddies team raised more than $4,400 for the New York Best Buddies Friendship Walk on Sunday, April 28. Buffalo State had the largest team, with over 30 registered participants who braved cold, rainy weather outside the Buffalo Bills Field House. Best Buddies is 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). Their 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.
