We are proud to be once again a sponsor of the Best Buddies North Carolina Friendship Walk! To accommodate the current health crisis, Best Buddies North Carolina adapted this annual in-person walk to an inclusive virtual experience on June 20th, 2020. Thank you to the Lincoln Derr team for contributing to the success of this event. The final fundraising numbers will be announced later this week, but early results indicate only a small gap to goal.
The online event included the Best Buddies North Carolina Opening Ceremoniesvideotaped at our office. We were thrilled to open up our office for the taping and enjoyed meeting top fundraisers, fellow corporate sponsors, and BBNC board members.
Since 2009, more than 150,000 participants in 60 cities have walked to raise awareness for inclusion, friendship, leadership development, and integrated job opportunities for people with Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities (IDD).
Best Buddies North Carolina is a newer chapter (3 years old) and has grown tremendously with a modest budget. The Best Buddies Friendship Walk proceeds are used to fund local Best Buddies programs. Every dollar raised goes towards making the world a more inclusive and accepting place.
Lincoln Derr is right in step with the Best Buddies mission. We support inclusion for all and plan to continue building our relationship with Best Buddies North Carolina. As a community, it is essential to support businesses that value inclusion. The companies pictured below sponsored this year’s walk. Support these folks if you can. They share our belief in the power of inclusion and friendship.
