Walk with us and Embrace the Power of Friendship!
FriendshipWalks is a Walkathon organized to promote the issue of elder social isolation and to raise funds for FriendshipWorks’ volunteer match programs serving elders in Boston and Brookline. 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, and friendly pet visits.
Walk with a friend or meet a new friend, form a team, bring your match. Honor a friendship or an elder in your life, or walk in memory of someone important to you. Choose a route; collect pledges; then bring your pet, friends, neighbors, colleagues, and family, and join us on May 15th!
FriendshipWalks will promote the importance of building neighborly connections, the value of friendship, and the role of walking and physical activities in the health and well-being of elders.
