The 5th Annual R.I. Friendship Walk hosted by Best Buddies will be held in Providence next month. The event aims to raise funds to support the organization’s goal of promoting inclusion for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The walk will take place on April 22, starting at Ray Treacy Track at Providence College. The event is free and open to the public, and there will be food trucks, face painting, and special performances. Those interested can choose to join a team or create their own without any fundraising goal. However, organizers hope to surpass last year’s $40,000 fundraising record. All proceeds from the walk will be spent on Best Buddies friendship and leadership programs. Photos from previous Friendship Walks are available on Best Buddies’ website.
