Why Walk with FriendshipWorks?

Your participation will help support FriendshipWorks’ critical mission of reducing social isolation and help strengthen and expand our collective force of almost 600 trained, caring volunteers who provide highly personalized programming and friendship to older adults in Boston, Brookline, Newton, Cambridge, and Somerville. Funds raised through our Walk support our FIVE critical programs, which allow us to bring joy and companionship to isolated elders all over Greater Boston - FREE OF CHARGE!

You can participate in three ways:

  • Walk With Us!  For this 1.9 mile walk around Jamaica Pond, you can register as an individual walker, a walker with a dog, or a virtual walker when you sign up. You will then be prompted to create a team or join an existing one. From there, you can then set your own fundraising goal. Stay tuned for prizes and incentives to keep you on track!

  • Donate to a Walk Team. If you can’t make it to the event in May, you can still help by donating to a team. Just scroll below and donate to a team or walker of your choice!

  • Get Your Company Involved.  Create a Walk team and invite employees, families, and friends to make our Walk a true community event, and a team-building engagement tool for your workforce. Joining our Walk makes for a great corporate social responsibility investment.
