2021 Support-A-Walk Helps Those with Breast and Ovarian Cancer
Support Connection walkers
The Annual Support-A-Walk, which brings help and hope to people fighting breast and ovarian cancer, will take place on October 3. The walk is presented by and helps fund the work of Support Connection , a Yorktown Heights-based not-for-profit organization that provides free year-round programs for people affected by these cancers.
Each year, thousands of people from across the Hudson Valley and beyond take part in the Support-A-Walk. Many walk in celebration of or in tribute to those affected by these diseases. This year’s theme is Walk With Us, Wherever You Are! Just as Support Connection helps local residents as well as people nationwide via their toll-free and web services, now people nationwide can participate in the Support-A-Walk by donating and raising funds, says Barbara Cervoni, director of services and communication for Support Connection.
“There are many ways you can help,” she says. “Walk in your town or neighborhood. Walk on your own or with family and friends. Form a walk team. Raise funds online by asking others to donate. Donate online or by mail. Spread the word to everyone you know. Whether you walk or not, you can donate and fundraise. Your participation will make a difference in many lives.”
