NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WGGB) — Look Park hosted a Friendship Walk to benefit Best Buddies this morning. 

Best Buddies is a nonprofit organization who’s mission is to establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Since 2009 nearly 25,000 participants have walked and raised over $2 million for Best Buddies.

Proceeds from walks like the one in Look Park today, play a critical role in funding state programs which provide leadership development, integrated job opportunities and one-on-one friendships for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
