March is Best Buddies Month!
Did you know that March is Best Buddies month? Founded in 1989 by Anthony Shriver, Best Buddies has grown from its one, original chapter at Georgetown University to an international organization with more than 2,300 chapters worldwide. Best Buddies builds one-to-one friendships between people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities.
My daughter, Victoria, joined Best Buddies in 1999, and she and her Buddy, Ramon, have been friends ever since.
Join me at the Maryland Best Buddies Friendship Walk On May 5. You can register here.
You can also join me in taking the Spread the Word to End the Word pledge now at r-word.org and encourage your friends and family to join, too.
