Walk with me and embrace the power of Friendship!
Dear Colleagues, Friends and Family,
It has been a privilege and an honor to serve as a Board Member of FriendshipWorks for over 8 years.
In 2014, FriendshipWorks celebrated its 30th anniversary and successfully raised over $300,000. This year we are launching our First Annual Walk-A-Thon, FriendshipWalks, on Sunday, May 15, 2016.
I invite you join our mission to reduce elder isolation and provide friendly support and assistance to the elders we serve, including one-on-one friendly visits, medical escorts, and friendly pet visits. FriendshipWalks will raise awareness of the power of friendship in ending elder isolation and raise critical funds to support our programs.
Walk with a friend, make a new friend, form a team of your own or become my sponsor....honor a friendship or an elder in your life, or walk in memory of someone important to you.
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. Choose a route; collect pledges; then bring your pet, friends, neighbors, colleagues, and family, and join us on May 15th!
You can make a difference to so many isolated elders and I hope you will lend your support and compassion to an extraordinary organization that means so much to me.
With friendship, I thank you.
