Support Connection, Inc., a not-for-profit organization offering free support services to people affected by breast and ovarian cancer, says it’s not too late to get involved with their 2020 Annual Support-A-Walk , scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 4.
There are many ways to get involved! Ask friends and family to donate by setting up an fundraising page or asking for donations via cash or check. You can raise funds alone or as part of a Team. You can also donate directly to the Walk. To learn about all of these options, visit www.supportconnection.org/donate-and-fundraise.
The Support-A-Walk was founded twenty-six years ago by local residents as a way to focus attention on breast and ovarian cancer, and to raise funds for Support Connection’s free, year-round support services for those living with these diseases. Since the organization was founded in 1996, thousands of people locally and across the country have received help from Support Connection.
The theme for this year’s Support-A-Walk is “Walk With Us, Wherever You Are.” In lieu of gathering by the thousands in the park, Support Connection invites people to walk in their own town or city, neighborhood, or even on a treadmill at home.
This year more than ever, raising funds for these critically needed services is necessary, because cancer doesn’t stop for a pandemic. The Support-A-Walk is Support Connection’s most important annual fundraiser. 88¢ of every dollar donated directly funds their free breast and ovarian cancer support services. Support Connection does not receive funds from any national cancer organizations including Relay for Life, Susan G. Komen, or Making Strides.
