Thank you for considering donating money to the Walkathon!
I have had the honor of working for Friendship Circle Miami for the last three years. While I have spent the bulk of that time working remotely, my work has given me a unique insight into this beautiful organization's tremendous work and accomplishments.
Friendship Circle has a variety of programs, all designed to improve the lives of children with special needs and their families. After-school programs allow our special friends to socialize and express their creative talents through art, sport, and music. The Life-Skills program takes our participants out into the world to teach them the skills to navigate their unique challenges and live as independently as possible. Our "no-school-fun-days" and day-camps allow our friends to build social connections and have fun while offering respite to their parents and caregivers.
All this is achieved through the efforts of our teenage volunteers, who themselves benefit fantastically. Friendship Circle is truly a circle that benefits all those involved. Will you join the circle?
Every dollar we raise will help individuals with special needs and their families receive social support and resources, which will help the community recover from the pandemic and thrive... one friendship at a time.
