Make a Texas Size Impact for people with disabilities!

Join Team Friendship as we take on Texas for our biggest flagship marathon event yet.

You’ll experience an incredible all-inclusive weekend celebrating the impact you’re having on people with disabilities, followed by the Austin Marathon!

Rated in the top 10 half-marathons ever, this race will take you to one of the coolest cities in America alongside over 17,000 celebs, pro athletes, locals, and runners from in and out of the country. You’ll run through the live music capital of the world past over a dozen live bands starting right in front of the Texas capital in downtown Austin. You’ll run downtown, passing famous murals and lakes, and cross the finish line, that’s a 3 block-long party where your running shoes turn into dancing shoes.

"It is an incredible feeling to know that Team Friendship makes a difference in the lives of so many.  I also think that Team Friendship gives its participants a gift, too. The weekend brings together people accepting of all, regardless of background and abilities. It is an unforgettable weekend."

Make a Texas-Size Impact on People with Disabilities

Y'all means All

  • Friendship Circle creates friendship and inclusion in the lives of people with disabilities by pairing them with typical peers for a range of social and recreational programs that focus on abilities and the unique contribution every individual can make.
  • The funds you raise go directly to creating communities where everyone belongs and is worthy of love, acceptance, and friendship.
  • When you fundraise, you’re not asking for yourself. The people who care about you would love to support you and the cause your care about.
  • You’ll receive templates for email, social, and texts to invite your friends and family to support your challenge, along with our best tips and tricks. 98% of runners reach their goal, so we’re confident you got this!

Get as much as you give

You train for the distance of your choice with the support of Coach Chaim, who will provide you with a training plan and answer all your burning questions, and we’ll do the rest. From the moment you touchdown in Austin, Texas, you’ll be taken care of with an all-inclusive weekend at the Hilton in downtown Austin just steps away from the marathon start line. You’ll experience an uplifting Shabbat where you’ll see and hear about your impact, great eats, a pre-race pasta party, an incredible marathon, and a post-race celebration.
