FriendshipWorks is back again for its Fourth Annual walk-a-thon! The last three years have been a huge success so we are back to do it again! Lace up your sneakers, walk more steps, bring a friend, make a gift to end elder isolation. I know we can do it! With your help we can raise awareness of the power of friendship and more importantly 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, friendly helpers, music events and friendly pet pal visits.
It is my pleasure to be walking the beautiful route around Jamaica Pond as you can see from my picture last year, walking with my friend Eva, it was a beautiful day and lots of fun! As many of you know I have been a volunteer for over 20 years and remain Chair of the Board and am really committed to the mission of FriendshipWorks. I walk for my friends who I missed dearly; Norma, Evelyn, Mary and my new friends Patricia and Michelle. I have so many lovely memories with my time spent with FriendshipWorks and I know you will support me in reaching my goal!!
Thank you for starting me on my journey to May 19th!
