Walk 4 Friendship 2012

This Sunday I'm going to do something incredible. But, I won't be alone. I'll be with about 4,999 other people. We'll be participating in Walk 4 Friendship, an annual 5k walk that raises crucial funds and community awareness for The Friendship Circle- a nonprofit group for individuals with special needs. The walk begins with an inspirational opening ceremony followed by a 5k walk (or the 1 mile option that I'll be walking!). As we reach the finish line, we'll all enjoy a huge celebration where the community comes together to show support for families of kids with special needs with entertainment, activities, food, and much more!!

The walk started in 2006 when the bird was 20 months old and still not walking, so she "strolled" in her stroller! I've participated each year since that very first year because Friendship Circle is so special to us. This is where Little Bird has been given the gift of true acceptance, and real friendship. FC provides programs and support to the families of individuals with special needs. In addition, they also enrich its vast network of volunteers by enabling them to reap the rewards of selfless giving.

Show your support by joining my team and walking with us, making a donation, or just keeping us in your thoughts!

Here are a couple posts on the walk from last year and the year before!
