Bring help and hope to folks fighting breast, ovarian and
other gynecological cancers by participating in Support Connection’s annual
Support-A-Walk on October 1, 2023. This year’s walk will take place at Franklin D.
Roosevelt (FDR) State Park, in Yorktown Heights, as well as in communities
nationwide. Pre-walk activities begin at 9 a.m. and the walk kicks off at 10
Support-A-Walk is held to bring attention to the needs of people living with
breast, ovarian and other gynecological cancers. 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.
“Whether showing support locally or from afar,
there are many ways to be of help,” encourages Communications and Special
Projects Coordinator Celeste Baccari. “You can walk in FDR State Park, walk in
your own neighborhood, walk on your own or form a walk team with family and
friends. And, whether you walk or not, you can donate and fundraise and spread
the word to everyone you know,” she adds.
