Shine a light, show support and raise awareness for the special needs community!
A life without friendship or purpose is no life at all. Every day, a staggering number of children, teens and young adults with special needs face their world alone. Friendship Circle was founded in pursuit of breaking down these walls of isolation. By identifying the overwhelming need for a place of friendship and inclusion for individuals with special needs, Friendship Circle is living out a critical mission through something as pure as friendship.
Since its founding in 2008, Friendship Circle Upper East Side has proudly served hundreds of children with special needs with the help of over 500 active volunteers and 37 weekly and seasonal programs.
Now celebrating its 10th year, the FriendshipWalkNYC has the power to raise a considerable portion of our overall operating budget for one year. Held on Sunday, May 15th on the Upper East Side of Manhattan
, more than 3,000 supporters from varying backgrounds will come together and go the distance as one. This year, our goal is to raise $350,000 for our incredible community.
Join us and make all the difference, today!
