The Miles for Miles Foundation was created in honor of Miles Peck, who was born with Down syndrome on July 22, 2009. The M4M Foundation supports local non profits who enhance the lives of others with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Miles for Miles is honored to be a founding partner of Best Buddies TN Jobs. This program secures employment for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), allowing them to earn an income, pay taxes, and continuously and independently support themselves. Through the Jobs program, Best Buddies develops partnerships with employers, assists with the hiring process and provides ongoing support to the employee and employer. Miles for Miles values its multi year commitment to this program as it seeks to give greater opportunity, therefore enhancing lives…… the M4M mission! The Miles for Miles Foundation is also proud to provide scholarship money to students who are attending post secondary education programs.
“We interviewed a lot of people and we treated the interview the same with Walter as we would anyone else. He outshined everyone we discussed the position with. It was just his attitude.” - Spencer Donaldson, CEO, Eat Well NashvilleWalter is working his dream job and he was finally able to purchase that laptop he was saving up for!
