Best Buddies Month Social Media Contest

March is Best Buddies Month!

Best Buddies Month is a time for our participants and supporters alike to reflect on and celebrate the importance of friendship and inclusion through the Best Buddies Chapters across Canada.

When we started Best Buddies Canada almost 25 years ago, we never imagined that this organization would be part of the Best Buddies International family and impact the lives of millions of people across the globe, spanning 50 countries and six continents – what began as a one-day event has become a month-long celebration of the Best Buddies mission.

As we celebrate the impact Best Buddies has had on individuals’ lives, we want to introduce you to our new Canadian Executive Director, Vicki MacCrimmon and to our 2016-17 Spirit of Friendship winners Sierra and Melanie. Their story is a true testament to the power of Best Buddies and one that has inspired people all across our nation.

In friendship,

Daniel J. Greenglass and Penny Shore
Co-Founders and Co-Chairs, Best Buddies Canada
