Reflections on our 2016 Support-A-Walk
What a terrific day! On Sunday, Oct. 2, 2016, at FDR State Park, nearly 10,000 people participated in our Annual Support-A-Walk, held each year to bring attention to the needs of people living with breast and ovarian cancer. Proceeds benefit Support Connection’s FREE, year round counseling and other support services for people affected by these diseases.
It was a wonderful morning! Everyone came together to support, celebrate, and remember. Every year we are moved and humbled by the many expressions of emotion, solidarity and inspiration that come from you, our friends and supporters.
We are very grateful to all who participated! Walkers, teams, sponsors, donors, volunteers, everyone who made this day possible. Most of all: Thank you to the many people whose lives have been affected by breast and ovarian cancer, for sharing your day with us – you are the reason Support Connection exists!
