REGISTRATION AND DONATIONS NOW ACCEPTED FOR LOCAL CANCER WALK

Registrations and donations are now being accepted for Support Connection’s 20th Anniversary Support-A-Walk, scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 5 at FDR State Park in Yorktown Heights. It is the organization’s most important annual fundraiser, with 89¢ of every dollar raised directly funding their free breast and ovarian cancer support services. The Support-A-Walk was founded 20 years ago by local residents to bring attention to the needs of people affected by breast and ovarian cancer. People travel from across the Hudson Valley and beyond to take part in the event. In 2013, there were more than 9,000 participants, with registrants from more than 114 different towns and 10 different states. Donations for the event came from people in 645 different towns in 39 different states.
