Select A Team:


Team Friendship Surf City


Team Friendship

Wherever you go, your presence creates ripples of influence. Embrace challenges with unwavering determination, confronting them fearlessly. And when serendipitous opportunities cross your path, generously spread their blessings with those around you.

Friendship Circle Ambassadors are extraordinary individuals, much like yourself, who invite their friends, families, or communities to join them for an unforgettable weekend experience, amplifying their impact on individuals with special needs. Running a marathon is a profound journey in itself, but when you bring your loved ones along, it becomes a transformative, life-changing endeavor.

"It's really gratifying to help people who never dreamed of completing a long-distance run. I've never been the most popular kid in class, so I love spreading the values that everyone needs to be kind to one another, see people for who they are, and not judge them for how they act"

"I got involved in my local Friendship Circle chapter via Team Friendship! It brings me such joy watching new team members go through the experience for the first time... because I know it will always be the first of many."
