Description

The Best Buddies Friendship Walk (BBFW) is the number one walk in the country raising awareness and funds to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The walk plays a key role in funding Best Buddies programs dedicated to one-to-one friendships, leadership development, and integrated job opportunities for individuals with IDD. Each walk provides an opportunity to see the Best Buddies mission in action at a local level.


The Best Buddies Friendship Walk-Long Beach features a 5K course through Shoreline Village and on the surrounding walking paths. Continental breakfast provided. Guests enjoy inspirational speeches from our participants with intellectual and developmental disabilities, a vendor village, family friendly activities and entertainment.
