Kirson & Fuller Staff Participates in Best Buddies Friendship Walk
On Saturday, May 5th, staff from The Elder Law Center of Kirson and Fuller, along with hundreds of others, came together to show their support and participate in the Best Buddies Friendship Walk at Lake Eola in downtown Orlando.
The Best Buddies Friendship Walk is the number one walk in the country raising awareness and funds to support individuals with intellectual developmental disabilities. 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.
Proceeds from the Best Buddies Friendship Walk provide the necessary tools for people with Intellectually Disability to become more independent and valued members of our society. Since the walks inception in 2009, more than 70,000 participants in 46 cities have walked to raise awareness for inclusion, friendship, leadership and opportunity for people with IDD.
Attorney Heather Kirson, who is a board member for Best Buddies, held a friendly competition amongst the top 3 fundraising high schools. The Elder Law Center of Kirson & Fuller donated $1,000 to the top school who raised the most money for Best Buddies. Congratulations to West Orange High School!
