Perry Meridian High School participated in the Annual “Friendship Walk” for Best Buddies of Central Indiana.  Participants walk for inclusion, friendship, leadership, and opportunity for people with and without Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD).

Best Buddies High Schools matches students with Intellectual Developmental Disabilities (IDD) with other high school students and creates one-to-one friendships between them. A Best Buddies program in a school crosses the invisible line that too often separates those with disabilities from those without.

Proceeds from the walk play a fundamental part in funding state programs which provide one-to-one friendships, leadership development and integrated job opportunities for individuals with IDD.
