Welcome to TEAM emb(race)® 2024

Over the past three years there have been many challenges in the world, along with the loss of our visionary and leader, Shawn Friedkin, who passed away on March 3 2021. While we are still mourning this incredible loss, we remain dedicated more than ever to keep his vision alive. Our Team emb(race)® remains in his memory.

Join Team emb(race)® in-person or virtually as part of the Spirit of Giving, Community Spirit Race on March 2, 2024, on the Boca Raton campus of FAU (5K or one-mile family walk/run). The race will be accessible for those with visual and mobility impairments. We welcome the use of daily wheelchairs, but we are sorry that the course cannot accommodate handcycles or racing chairs.

As a race participant, sponsor or donor, you will help Stand Among Friends continue to fund our programs to enhance the lives of people with disabilities, by promoting opportunities for them to live a life without limits.
