The annual Sydney Friendship Walk takes place on Sunday, starting at Vaucluse Public School.
Doors open at 9.30am and the signature purple Walk T-shirt will be available for collection at the entrance. After the official opening, participants will be taking a beautiful, scenic walk together through Watsons Bay, followed by the Family Fun Day at Vaucluse Public School. There will be music, lots of fun activities for the kids, food and drink, and much more.
The Friendship Circle Walk began in 2009 with a small but dedicated committee, a handful of business partners and an idea to build a self-perpetuating annual community fundraising and awareness event. The aim of the Walk is to raise awareness for disability acceptance and inclusion.
Since then, the Friendship Circle Walk has become a popular event attracting over 1500 people and raising around $200,000 per year to support programs for children with disabilities. Attendance and participation continue to grow, and even through COVID the community connected virtually to celebrate this day, raising even more funds than before to support this local need.
The Friendship Circle Walk, besides being an integral event on the local eastern suburbs community calendar, forms an important part of Friendship Circle’s mission.
There is still time to register for the Walk and help reach the goal of $200,000 by visiting sydneyfc.org.au/event/walk/donate
