October 1 at FDR Park in Yorktown Heights




Support Connection walkers

Support Connection Inc., which brings help and hope to people fighting breast and ovarian cancer, will present its annual Support-A-Walk on October 1 at FDR Park in Yorktown Heights. Every year thousands of people from across the Hudson Valley participate in the three-mile walkathon to celebrate or pay tribute to those affected by these diseases.

Proceeds from the event help fund Support Connection’s free programs and services for people dealing with breast and ovarian cancer. Support Connection has a toll-free number to provide information and support to people all over the country.

“If you’re in the Hudson Valley, our support groups and inperson services are in your neighborhood,” says Barbara Cervoni, director of services and communication for Support Connection.

Support-A-Walk offers many opportunities to help the cause, she says. “You can form a walk team, collect donations and walk on your own, raise funds online by asking family, friends and others to donate, or spread the word in your neighborhood. Everyone is welcome—men and women, students, families, people of all ages. It’s a wonderful morning filled with community spirit. Every participant will make a difference in many lives. Those who can’t attend can still donate and fundraise.”

For more info or to make a donation, visit SupportConnection.org or call 914.962.6402.
