Walk with us and embrace the power of Friendship!
FriendshipWalks is our first Annual Walk-a-Thon! It will raise awareness of the power of friendship in ending elder isolation and raise critical funds to support our programs. FriendshipWorks’ programs aim to reduce isolation and provide friendly support and assistance to the elders we serve, including one-on-one friendly visits, medical escorts, and friendly pet visits.
It is my pleasure to be walking from our main office in Chinatown to the Brighton Office (5+miles) to raise funds for our programs with FriendshipWorks. As many of you know I have been a volunteer for over 17 years and been Chairing the Board for the last year and really enjoying all we do for our elders. I walk for Norma M, Evelyn A., Mary D and my recent friend Michelle M. I have had so many lovely memories with my time spent with FriendshipWorks and I know you will support me in reaching my goal........or surpassing it!!!
FriendshipWalks will promote the importance of building neighborly connections, the value of friendship, and the role of walking and physical activities in the health and well-being of elders.
