    Women in Communications Meetup: Karyn and Ethan to become Best Buddies Champion of the Year

    September 24, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

    Free

    In September we recognize Karyn Turk and Ethan Litman ‘s campaign to become Best Buddies Champion of the Year 2019.

    Through 10 weeks of raising funds and awareness for Best Buddies, our Champions will generate countless opportunities for friendships, jobs, and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. At the campaign’s conclusion, we will join together to celebrate each other’s accomplishments, honor the Champions’ collective impact, and name the ultimate Champion of the Year! “~ via Best Buddies

    South Florida’s very own Karyn Turk, former Mrs. Florida (2016), TV Host, Social Media, Radio Personality, Producer and Actress has set her mind on a new challenge. To become Champion of the year for Best Buddies.

    Anthony Kennedy Shriver founded Best Buddies in 1989, fomenting friendships among individuals with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). This volunteer movement makes one-to-one friendships possible along with employment, leadership development, and inclusive living for individuals with IDD.

    The IDD community served by Best Buddies includes people with Down syndrome, autism, Fragile X, Williams syndrome, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, and other undiagnosed disabilities

    As part of the program, Karen has been paired with a high school student named Ethan Litman. “He is a rock star!” she claims. Someone that is a little bit older than her son and such a great journey. Ethan is instrumental in creating awareness for the program and embraces his differences which converts into a powerful thing.
