5 Things to Know About the 2020 Walk4Friendship

The 15th annual Walk4Friendship will take place on Sunday, Sept. 6. of Labor Day weekend. These are five things you need to know about this year’s virtual walk:

1. We’ll be apart but close in heart.

We’re doing things a little differently this year to make sure we all stay safe while having fun. On Sept. 6, we’re asking everyone to walk around your neighborhood, park, yard, treadmill, house or building while following social distancing guidelines.

Just because we are apart physically this year doesn’t mean that anyone should feel isolated in their home. This year’s Walk4Friendship will unite families in the community with the shared goal of spreading awareness and raising critical funds to support programming for kids and adults with special needs.

2. The opening ceremony will be live-streamed.

Tune-in on Sept. 6 at 11 a.m. for the Walk4Friendship virtual opening ceremony on Facebook. Get excited because there are lots of fun surprises in store!

We’re looking back on everything Friendship Circle has accomplished since going virtual in March. From virtual programs to Camp in a Box, Friendship Circle imagined new ways to end isolation and deliver joy and friendship for families.

You can watch the opening ceremony here.

3. We’re celebrating 15 years of Walk4Friendship.

Since Friendship Circle was founded in 1994 with only eight volunteers, our belief that each soul is equal and worthy of boundless love has stayed constant. Walk4Friendship has remained a critical fundraiser each year to support the FC mission of creating friendships in the lives of

individuals with special needs and those facing isolation through programming and other opportunities.

While this year will be a little different, we’re looking back on how Walk4Friendship has united families in the community each year.

4. Tie-dye is a big deal this year.

Walk4Friendship t-shirts came with tie-dye kits this year! Share your fun creations on social media and make sure to tag @fcmichigan and use the hashtag #Walk4Friendship.

Make sure to wear your Walk4Friendship t-shirts on Sept. 6 when you walk and post your photos on social media!

5. Walk4Friendship is still taking donations.

It’s not too late to show your support for Walk4Friendship or to encourage your friends and family to as well. No matter where you are in the world, you can still walk for friendship this year and show your support.
