Best Buddies in The Fox-Hole (a Conversation)

March is Best Buddies Month, in honour of Best Buddies Canada, which is an National charitable Organization which helps to create friendships between students and people with intellectual disabilities. It’s an opportunity to enjoy the same experiences most people take for granted such as going for coffee, watching a movie or simply enjoying the companionship of a good friend.

Best Buddies has chapters in 50 countries around the world and boasts chapters in 250 schools across Canada, including several here in Fredericton: UNB, STU, FHS, Leo Hayes, Nashwaaksis Middle School and Park Street Elementary School.

On Saturday, the Read All About It event will take place between 1-3 at Chapters in the Regent Mall, and it’s a chance for people to learn more about the program, how to get involved, etc. It’s basically a thank you to the students who have committed to the Best Buddies program. You’re welcome to drop by and meet them, and learn more.

The other day, a couple of Best Buddies from STU dropped in for a chat. Amelia Ross & Elizabeth Asher shared some of their experiences as friends, and it sounds like they get along famously. Elizabeth says it’s important to have someone like Amelia in her life as a friend, and Amelia, likewise, also thinks it’s a very rewarding way to volunteer. Listen to our chat below:

Check out The Read All About It event if you can. To learn more about Best Buddies Canada, go HERE.
