Join Tate Aldrich, 2017 NH Teacher of the Year, in his efforts to support Best Buddies!

Through Best Buddies, thousands of people with disabilities have successfully moved from segregation and desolation to a new acceptance in their family and community. In turn, Best Buddies has created a new spirit of public service for thousands of middle school, high school and college volunteers that will last a lifetime.

People with intellectual and developmental disabilities can struggle to make connections on their own. The need for belonging is essential – without it, there’s nothing but loneliness and isolation.

“As both a Best Buddies Champion and an Advisor at Kingswood Regional High School, my job is to solicit funds and dismantle social barriers, so that EVERYONE's heart can learn to invite the world.”

Best Buddies is here to make sure everyone has a sidekick. Someone who knows your favorite ice cream flavor, surprises you on your birthday, picks you up when you’re down, and knows what makes you amazing. Donate today and support Best Buddies and make a difference in the life of a person with a disability!

Best Buddies Champion of the Year is a 10 week fundraising competition that culminates with a winner being crowned at a Champion Gala on November 4th. 2017. Please help Tate in his efforts to raise money for Best Buddies.
