Best Buddies International 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). Our programs help people with IDD form meaningful friendships with their peers, secure successful jobs, live independently, improve public speaking, self-advocacy and communication skills, and feel valued by society.
Our annual Friendship Walk is a completely free event for the community! It will be taking place on April 21, 2018 at Cotanchobee Park in Downtown Tampa. We are looking at having 25+ vendors for food, drink and entertainment for all ages!
We are looking for volunteers to help out at our annual Friendship Walk to benefit all of our programs! We are expecting around 3000 people to be in attendance at our walk, and are looking for people to help out in the following areas:
-Water Distribution along walk path
-River Walk Path directors
-Kids zone booth attendants
-Set up/Clean Up
Our event begins at 8am, but we are asking volunteers to come for 6am to help with final set up and to go over logistics!
If you are interested in helping out Best Buddies Tampa, please contact Judy Henry, who will be the volunteer coordinator for this event!
