WALKING 4 FRIENDSHIP 3K Sunday, April 25, 2021
For the first time, we will be hosting the Walk-A-Thon at scenic Tropical Park. The ample space and outdoor activities will provide for the optimal experience for you and your family! Check it out:
Join us as we come #Together Again in support of individuals with special needs. Over the years, the Walk-A-Thon has raised over $1.2 million (that's a lot of friendships!) for our programs which uplift children and teens with autism and other special needs through one-to-one friendships with teenage volunteers. This year's Walk-A-Thon will pay homage to the courage and resiliency of our community while raising funds to enable us to help the community thrive... one friendship at a time.
Choose How You Walk
In accordance with safety protocols, start times will be staggered and there will be a limit on the total number of walkers - therefore, please register beforehand to attend. No walk-ups will be permitted. If you are unable to make it, choose your own 3-kilometer route and stay connected on social media to be part of the action.
The Walk-A-Thon will follow recommended CDC health guidelines for events and gatherings, and we will continually monitor the situation and make any necessary adjustments to the event, with the safety health and safety of our participants, staff, and volunteers as our top priorities.
Our special needs community has been seriously impacted by the pandemic, with time away from friends, school & therapies compounding the need for socialization and parent and caregiver support. Learn more about how your support will help this community rebound and recover by viewing the clip below.
