Support Connection announces that their 2022 Annual Support-A-Walk for Breast and Ovarian Cancer is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 2. The event is Support Connection’s most important annual fundraiser. Proceeds provide funding for their year-round breast, ovarian and gynecological cancer support services, which have helped thousands of people since the organization was founded in 1996.
The Support-A-Walk was created by local residents to bring attention to the needs of people affected by breast, ovarian and gynecological cancers. Thousands of people participate each year in this inspiring and uplifting event. Participants of all ages walk, often in honor or memory of loved ones – a celebration of life and a tribute to those individuals and families who are affected by breast and ovarian cancer. Families, friends, co-workers, and teams of walkers walk together. Individuals are also welcome to participate.
Support Connection is excited to gather together again in person and host the event at FDR State Park. Even those who can’t make it to the park are still welcome to walk where they are, near and far. The Support-A-Walk theme is “Walk With Us, Wherever You Are” in recognizing that Support Connection’s programs serve people nationwide. This enables people throughout the country to participate in the Walk. No matter where you live, you can join Support Connection and work together to support a common cause, on Walk day.
Support Connection does not receive funds from any national cancer organizations including Relay for Life, Susan G. Komen or Making Strides. By participating in or donating to the Support-A-Walk, community members can make a positive difference in the lives of women and families facing the challenges of a breast, ovarian, or gynecological cancer diagnosis.
