Help Support Connection Make a Difference by Participating in the Support-A-Walk, on October 2, in Yorktown Heights

Putnam Valley Cheer Team

Bring help and hope to people fighting breast and ovarian cancer by participating in the annual Support-A-Walk, presented by Support Connection Inc., on October 2, in FDR Park, in Yorktown Heights, and in communities nationwide.

“Support Connection is based in Yorktown Heights, but their toll-free and web services allow for a nationwide reach,” explains Debbie Campbell, development and communications manager for the not-for-profit organization. “Whether you are showing your support locally or from afar, you can participate in the Support-A-Walk. Walk with us, wherever you are.”

The Support-A-Walk is held to 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 take part in this uplifting community event. Many participants walk 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 people affected by breast, ovarian and gynecological cancer.

“There are many ways you can help,” adds Campbell. “Join us in FDR Park or walk in your own neighborhood. Walk on your own or form a walk team with your family and friends. Whether you walk or not, you can donate and fundraise. Spread the word to everyone you know.”

Location: FDR Park, 2957 Crompond Rd., Yorktown Heights, NY. For more information or to make a donation, call 914.962.6402 or visit
