This past April our MGA Denver staff teamed up with a very special MGA family and patient for the 2016 Best Buddies Friendship Walk in Castle Rock, Colorado. This nation-wide event is the number one walk in the country raising awareness and funds to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).

All funds raised from Best Buddies events support Best Buddies International – the world’s largest nonprofit organization dedicated to ending social, physical and economic isolation of those living with an IDD. The programs of Best Buddies International includes one-to-one friendship/mentoring opportunities, integrated employment and leadership development so as to promote meaningful relationships with peers, successful jobs, and independent living.
