To join the challenge, take the Vidapost pledge and register for $35. You will then be placed on a team based on location (or email us if there is a specific team you would like to join). Track your steps daily or occasionally and stay tuneds for walk/runs hosted by BuddiesInACTION.
TIME - SUPPORT AN AMBASSADOR
At BuddiesInACTION, we commit 10% of our time to services that support individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families. Our first program is a leadership program, called our Ambassador program allowing adults an opportunity to lead others in a healthy, motivating way.
