My Dear Friend,

I am still in awe as I reflect back on Walk4Friendship 2012, a momentous day for Friendship Circle. Never before has our community felt so united and strong- I cannot thank you enough for your support both in person and in spirit.

On the fundraising front, we are only $20,000 dollars away from surpassing last year’s fundraising total of $500,000. So long as donations continue to flow in through the end of the month, I am confident we will not only reach, but exceed our goal.

Again, thank you for making Walk4Friendship 2012 a remarkable success. On behalf of the staff, families, volunteers and supporters of the Friendship Circle, I wish you a happy, sweet and healthy new year.
