Annually, the Friendship Circle team puts an amazing event together where members of the FC community and their families join in order to raise money and celebrate the amazing aspects of The Friendship Circle. At the Vonage Campus where the event takes place, the FC team decorates the area with teal and purple balloons (the friendship circle colors, of course), and sets up numerous pop-up stands with games and entertaining activities for volunteers and buddies to engage in. The brief walk around the campus is a time to bond with friends, and for volunteers to become even closer and more connected to their buddies. But what lacks appreciation during this process is ultimately the FC walk committee’s dedication to the organization of the yearly awaited walk. Weeks prior to the event, the committee gathers to fundraise, discuss ways to advocate for the walk, and ties together small details that would essentially perfect the function.

The continuous success of the walk is due to the hard work and preparation that comes from the dedicated FC team. If you, your family members, neighbors, relatives, etc enjoy giving back while also having a terrific time with the people you care about, there is absolutely no reason why May 6th should not be booked in your calendar for a special event like this one. The time and effort put into the walk must be celebrated properly, surrounded by loved ones and unforgettable moments. Sign up/donate for the walk right now at  and make a difference!!!!!
