Support Connection, Inc. announces the launch of the 2017 “Team Spirit” campaign for their Annual Support-A-Walk for Breast and Ovarian Cancer, which will take place on Sunday, October 1, 2017 (rain or shine) at FDR Park, Route 202, Yorktown Heights, NY.

The Support-A-Walk is held to bring attention to the needs of people affected by breast and ovarian cancer, and to raise funds for Support Connection’s free support services for those living with these diseases. People across the Hudson Valley and beyond are helped by Support Connection’s counseling and other services.

Each year, thousands of people take part in this inspiring and uplifting community event. Participants of all ages complete a 3-mile walk, often in honor of loved ones who are affected by breast and ovarian cancer.

The Team Spirit Campaign encourages friends, family members, co-workers, neighbors to “team up” for the Support-A-Walk. Teams are groups of people who decide to participate in the Walk together. Team activities can include seeking donations, planning fundraising events, inviting others to participate, spreading the word about the Walk. Teams that attend together often create signs or banners to carry while they walk and gather for Team photos as part of the morning’s festivities.

Attending the Walk is not a requirement. Many Team activities can be done before the Walk from any location. To learn more about forming a Walk Team, visit supportconnection.org/form-or-join-a-team.

“Team Spirit Awards” will be presented for the following achievements:

  • Top 3 Teams for amount raised
  • Top 3 Teams for number of donors
  • Most creative Team sign or banner.

For details on how to qualify for a Team Spirit Award, contact Support Connection at 914-962-6402 or walk@supportconnection.org.
