The annual Support-A-Walk, presented by Support Connection, in Yorktown Heights, will take place on October 4, 2020, with a new theme: Walk With Us, Wherever You Are! For the first time the event will be nationwide as well as local. Rather than having a single, coordinated walk on a designated route, anyone in the United States can participate in their own city, town or neighborhood to bring help and hope to people fighting breast and ovarian cancer.

In past years Support-A-Walk has attracted thousands of walkers from across the Hudson Valley who participate in celebration of or in tribute to those affected by these diseases. Proceeds help fund Support Connection’s free, year-round programs and services for local residents as well as its nationwide toll-free and web services.

Although there’s no official walking route for Support-A-Walk this year, there are many ways to participate. They include walking solo or with family and friends, or forming a Walk Team; making donations online or by mail; and raising funds online by asking others to donate. Participants can donate and fundraise whether or not they walk.
