THE STORY:

May and I will be walking on May 15th in honor & memory of all the friends we’ve made during the past three years volunteering with FriendshipWorks' PetPals Program.  The staff, board, volunteers and supporters of FriendshipWorks are an amazing group of people who are dedicated to improving the lives of elders in our community.  FriendshipWorks’ mission is to reduce social isolation and replace it with the warmth and comfort provided by caring and dedicated friends. 

If you are a “friend of May”, you know how she can make you smile.  It’s not hard to imagine her bringing joy into the hearts of the elders she visits each week at the Sherrill House (a nursing home) in Jamaica Plain.  May has a new friend, Walter, an elder who enjoys one-on-one time with her through the PetPals/Friendly Visitor pilot program.

We hope you’ll support FriendshipWorks’ mission by sponsoring our walk.  Your generous donation (big or small) will help recruit, screen, train, match and provide on-going guidance to the volunteers who provide the friendship that so many elders need.  Together with May and I, you can help more elders live a happy and meaningful life.

10:00 am - 3:00 pm 

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. 

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.
