CCBDD Friendship Walk for Best Buddies was a Success

On Saturday, May 9th, the Columbiana County Board of DD hosted a Friendship Walk in support of Best Buddies Ohio.  Best Buddies is a nonprofit 501-c-3 organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Best Buddies aims to create a local chapter in Ohio, and this event is our effort to assist them in achieving their goal.

bbCCBDD was recognized as the first County Board of DD to host a Friendship Walk and there were 124 walkers who participated in the event. With their help, CCBDD was able to raise $7,317 in support of Best Buddies Ohio. The week of the event, Best Buddies Ohio Officially passed the 50% mark with respect to their goal of raising $250,000 to establish a Best Buddies chapter in Ohio.

Thanks to everyone who either participated or volunteered to make this a successful event!
