Select A Team:


Team Friendship Surf City


Team Friendship Ambassadors

You bring people together.

Wherever you are you make an impact and you leave your mark. When you see a challenge you don’t look past it, you tackle it head-on. When you find a great opportunity you share it with others. ​

Changing lives with Friendship

Friendship Circle Ambassadors are incredible humans

just like you who bring their friends, families, or communities

along with them for an incredible weekend experience and marathon

multiplying their impact on individuals with special needs. 

Running a long distance is an experience but bringing

your people along with you make it life-changing.

“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, not judge them for how they act."

- Dana Ginsburg


Recruit 3 of your favorite people to register and you’ll become a Team Friendship Ambassador.

Raise less do more

"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."
