The Best Buddies Friendship Walk, sponsored by Catania and Catania Attorneys at Law, will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2017, around Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park in Tampa, Florida.
Best Buddies, the world’s largest organization dedicated to improving the social, physical, and economic well-being of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), is an established presence in communities across America. The men and women who contribute to Best Buddies in their local areas work to build friendships with, establish job security for, and educate and empower those with IDD.
The annual Best Buddies Friendship Walk in Tampa, Florida is one of the most significant ways that Best Buddies connects with the community to raise funds and spread awareness for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Catania and Catania, a law firm that has served the Tampa Bay area for 25 years, is a proud sponsor of the Best Buddies Friendship Walk and is encouraging widespread participation.
This year’s Best Buddies Friendship Walk is a rain or shine event. It begins at 9:00 A.M., with opening ceremonies at Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park in Tampa, Florida. Between 10:00 A.M. and 12:00 P.M., community members walk or run alongside Best Buddies participants and enjoy the “Party in the Park.” As Best Buddy sponsors, community members, volunteers, and participants come together at this event, the positive impacts of fundraising and advocacy are on display for everyone to see.
The Best Buddies movement has grown from one original chapter founded in 1989 to nearly 2,000 chapters worldwide. Philanthropic efforts such as the Best Buddies Friendship Walk are key to raising the funds necessary to enhance the lives of people with IDD. The Friendship Walk on April 22, 2017 will not only raise money for Best Buddies Tampa Bay, but it will also provide Best Buddies participants with valuable experiences, friendships, and encouragement.
