Best Buddies Friendship Walk Malaysia

Walk for inclusion 
Walk for friendship
Walk for a better community


The Best Buddies Friendship Walk 2014, aiming to Change Lives for people with and without Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) went on smoothly without a hitch on the 6 SEPTEMBER 2014, SATURDAY at about 5pm at TAMAN TASIK PERMAISURI.

Yours truly was honoured to be invited to cover and experience the event which in many ways left a deep impression in my heart too. My little girl came along and she learn a few things as well as had a great time walking with everyone, getting her arm painted, taking pictures with 'soldiers' and getting scared by 'zombies'.


The crowd that gathered around at about 4.30pm

This is one of the most heart warming scene ever of the day..... 


This guy's music on his guitar is also amazing...he is from Egypt and his name is Billie Billz. He melted spectators heart with his rendition of All of Me and  You can Count On Me...


This is Janelle... (hope I got her name right) She brought Best Buddies to Malaysia....



This performance was simply mesmerizing and mind blowing... His name is Clarence Kang and he is an autistic pianist and I swear he plays so much better then a lot of normal people.... He is really SPECIAL.... and that makes him AMAZING!!!!
