On an unusually warm Sunday afternoon in March, about 1,000 Houstonians came together for the 8th annual Houston Friendship Walk. The 1-mile walk was in support of the Houston Friendship Circle, a non-profit organization that supports the special-needs community in Houston. The event took place at Congregation Beth Yeshurun. The day began with the Friendship Fair that included carnival booths from over 15 youth organizations, a mini health fair, food and rides. A short video shot in Houston was shown for everyone to see for themselves what the Friendship Circle is all about. The tribute also included a singing performance by Rodrick Harris (pictured, at left) of The Emery/Weiner School, together with Zak Katzenellenbogen (pictured, holding the microphone), a participant at the Houston Friendship Circle. Zak, with his parents Mark and Fran and sister Zoe, were also recognized for their years of service to the special-needs community.
