Helping Those with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Live Full Lives
The Miles for Miles (M4M) Foundation was created in honor of Miles Peck, who was born with Down syndrome on July 22, 2009. M4M supports local non profits who enhance the lives of others with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
Miles for Miles is a founding partner and continual supporter of the Best Buddies TN JOBS program – founded in 2015. This program secures employment for people with IDD, allowing them to earn an income, pay taxes, and continuously and independently support themselves.
On May 1st, 2019 Best Buddies will host its first annual graduation of JOBS participants that have been fully integrated into employment. We celebrate these participants, their employers, and the outstanding commitment that Best Buddies is providing. Miles for Miles has stood with this program since the beginning — developing partnerships with employers and making a difference in our community and the lives of others with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
