Best Buddies Friendship Walk
The Hartford Parking Authority is a proud sponsor of the Best Buddies Friendship Walk!
In support of this worthwhile cause, the Hartford Parking Authority provided free parking to event coordinators and attendees. To convey their thanks, Best Buddies sent us this card and some delicious cookies. Thank you for letting us be a part of this incredible event!

The IDD community that Best Buddies serves includes, but is not limited to, people with Down syndrome, autism, Fragile X, Williams syndrome, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury and other undiagnosed disabilities. Best Buddies is the world’s largest organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation of the 200 million people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Their programs empower the special abilities of people with IDD by helping them form meaningful friendships with their peers, secure successful jobs, live independently, improve public speaking, self-advocacy and communication skills, and feel valued by society.
