Best Buddies International is a non-profit dedicated to inclusion. It works to pair people with and without intellectual and/or developmental disabilities in one-to-one friendships. They advocate for disability rights, provide safe and fun social activities, and strive for equality for people of all ability levels. Our plan for this year is to work as a "Promoter Chapter", in which we would not have buddy pairs, but would fundraise and raise awareness for Best Buddies, and encourage people to join.
