A celebration of families and volunteers.

The Walk - 27 August, 9am

Since its inception in 2009, the Friendship Circle Walk has become a popular annual event attracting over 1,500 people and raising around $200k per year to support programs for children and young people with disabilities. Besides being an integral part of the local Eastern Suburbs community calendar, the Walk forms an important component of Friendship Circle’s mission of increasing disability awareness, acceptance and inclusion.

The Walk's Significance

  • The Walk is a special time for the wider Friendship Circle community to celebrate and support our families and volunteers.
  • New teen volunteers report that their first exposure to Friendship Circle was the amazing time they had joining the Walk! In this way, the event has a great awareness effect that helps us generate a steady stream of new volunteers.
  • The Walk is a platform for families with children with disabilities to financially support the programs that they and other families rely on - thus building a user support system for sustainability.
  • The Walk is a vehicle for us to acknowledge our generous and kind supporters and in a small way return some of the goodwill that has been extended to us with branding and marketing opportunities.

Event Info

The Friendship Walk will take place at Vaucluse Primary School on 27 August. Doors open at 9am and our signature purple Walk T-shirt will be available for collection at the entrance.
