YORKTOWN, N.Y. – The annual Support-a-Walk to benefit Support Connection returned for its 23rd year on Sunday, Oct. 1.

Those who could not attend are still able to participate. Donations are accepted by check, cash, and online at the Support Connection website. To learn more or to donate, visit supportconnection.org/support-a-walk-overview. Or contact Support Connection: 914-962-6402 or walk@supportconnection.org.

“What? No!” I said. “Why would you think that?”

What More Can Murphy Do?
