Friends walk to benefit kids with special needs

Friends walk to benefit kids with special needs

THE 10TH ANNUAL Walk4Friends — hosted by the Friendship Circle of Central New Jersey, a Manalapan-based organization that advocates on behalf of children with special needs — will take place Sunday, May 6, at 1 p.m. at the Vonage Corporate Center in Holmdel. 

The goal is to promote greater awareness and raise funds for the social and educational programs offered by Friendship Circle, a project of Chabad of Western Monmouth County.

This year’s walk will honor Randy Goldberg, whose three children have participated in the program and who continues to volunteer, having raised almost $39,000 for Walk4Friends. 

Also being honored are local businesses that have supported the walk since its inception: Eyechic, Gold-N-Time Jewelers, JBH Worldwide, Park East Kosher, Walden Farms, and Rosen Decorators. Eyechic, in Manalapan, will donate a percentage of all purchases until the walk to the Friendship Circle, and all donors who donate $180 or more to the event will be entered into a raffle for Design4Friendship, a child’s room makeover donated by House of Style & Design in Holmdel.

A fair — featuring food, inflatable bouncers, carnival rides, a petting zoo, face painting, and a vendor market — will be held after the walk, along with a BMX Bike show. 

Walk4Friends director Chana’le Wolosow said the event “helps develop a strong sense of community, while showing support for special children and their families.”
