On Sunday, May 15th we will be walking/running to raise awareness and funds for an organization and a community that has a special place in my heart.
Friendship Circle Upper East Side works every day to cultivate friendships between kids, teens and young adults with special needs and dedicated teen and young adult volunteers, providing social and recreational opportunities that are otherwise unavailable to individuals with special needs. Hundreds of friendships have been formed and so many lives have been changed for the better because of this beautiful organization.
For us this is a very personal cause. Our beautiful daughter Brocha, an 18 year with Down Syndrome considers Friendship Circle her second family! She loves her friends that come to our home to hang out with her, as well as the trips and activities the teen scene of Friendship Circle offers. Anything Friendship Circle related is her happy place!!!! Your support will be so appreciated and go such a long way. Thank you so much!
