Support Connection Team from last year

The 25th annual Support-A-Walk, presented by Support Connection, will be held October 6 at FDR Park in Yorktown Heights. This three-mile walkathon was created to support and bring attention to the needs of people living with breast and ovarian cancer.
       Each year, thousands of people from across the Hudson Valley and beyond come together for this community event, organizers say. Many participants walk in celebration of or in tribute to those affected by these diseases. Proceeds from the walkathon help fund Support Connection’s free programs and services for people affected by breast and ovarian cancer. Through its toll-free number, Support Connection provides information and support to people all over the country. It also provides in-person support groups and services for Hudson Valley residents.
    There are many ways to help this not-for-profit organization through Support-A-Walk. Participants can form a walk team; collect donations and walk on their own; raise funds online by asking family, friends and others to donate; make an individual donation; or spread the word in their neighborhood. People of all ages and skill levels are welcome to join the walk, donate or fundraise.
