Where: Crossgates Mall

Only for people in Best Buddies


Join us for our first-ever “Hybrid” Friendship Walk as we celebrate inclusion both virtually and in-person. We will host in-person, entry-timed waves between 9:00am-3:00pm for participants and their teams to join together and pick up t-shirts, take photos, and do a quick walk. We are thrilled to return to Crossgates Mall this year to celebrate.

We will also be hosting various livestream and pre-recorded virtual events between 9:00am-7:00pm so that everyone can be included, even from the comfort of their own homes. The official online Opening Ceremonies will go from 11:00-11:30am on Facebook and the virtual Awards Ceremony/After Party will be hosted at 5:00-6:30pm via Zoom.

Though we know this year may look different than it has in the past, we hope you will join us in whichever way is best for you. Thank you for supporting Best Buddies!
