Walk in Memory of Jonathan & The Joy of the Friendship Circle
Jonathan was a participant of the Friends at Home program. Friends at Home creates a fun opportunity for teenage volunteers to spend quality time with children with special needs within the comfort of their own homes.
Jonathan and his buddy Adam spent countless hours enjoying camaraderie, friendship, and true acceptance. Both of the boy’s families also connected and developed a lasting friendship. This bond truly reflects the meaning of the Friendship Circle.
After a short battle with cancer in 2010, Jonathan left this world behind. This annual walk is dedicated in his memory and the culture of kindness that he was part of within the teenage community.
