A celebration of families and volunteers.

The Walk - 28 Aug 9am

The Friendship Circle Walk began in 2009 with a small dedicated committee, a handful of business partners and an idea to build a self-perpetuating annual community fundraising and awareness event.

The Friendship Circle Walk has become a popular event attracting over 1,500 people and raising nearly $150k per year to support programmes 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 part of the local eastern suburbs community calendar, forms an important part of Friendship Circle’s mission.

Family Fun

  • 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 Friendship 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.
