Annual Support-A-Walk ~ Sunday, October 3, 2021

Walk With Us, Wherever You Are


The Support-A-Walk is our most important annual fundraiser. We rely on YOUR donations to sustain our free breast and ovarian cancer support services. We do NOT receive funds from Relay for Life, Making Strides, American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen, or any other national cancer group.

We ask anyone who participates in the Walk to donate whatever amount they can. EVERY donation makes a difference!


Forming a Team is a great way to increase your fundraising potential.

We invite you to walk with us, wherever you are. Ask family and friends to join you, wherever they are.

Whether you are near or far, it’s simple to form a Walk Team. Just ask others to be part of your team and raise funds with you.

Don’t forget to donate to your own Team. It’s a great way to get things started!

*Note to our returning fundraisers: We are excited to introduce our “new and improved” online fundraising pages this year, via FrontStream. When you’re ready to start your 2021 fundraising page and Team, you’ll also set up an account with FrontStream. It’s a very simple process!


Virtual Team Captain’s Meeting

Join us on Wednesday, August 18, at 7pm, for a Team Captain’s meeting via ZOOM. It’s a perfect chance to learn all about Teams, get or share ideas, and connect with other Teams. Everyone is welcome! To join us or for questions, contact Melissa: walk@supportconnection.org, 914-962-6402.

Frequently Asked Questions About Teams

A Team is a group of people who decide to work together to raise funds for the Support-A-Walk. They choose a Team name, then everyone on the Team seeks donations for the Team.

Each Team member reaches out to their own family, friends, co-workers and neighbors to ask them for donations for the Team.

A Team can have as many members as you’d like. If you don’t know anyone else who’s able to fundraise with you, you can be a Team of one!

No. You can raise funds for a Team even if you won't be able to walk with us!
There are 2 simple ways to ask for donations. Teams can do one or the other, or both:

Online: Each Team member creates a personal fundraising page for the Team, then shares their page via email and social media, asking people to make a secure, online donation. Donations from all Team member pages are combined for a Team total.

Offline: Each Team member asks for donations via cash or checks. They put the Team name on this Collection Form and keep track of donations they collect. Donations from all forms with the Team name are combined for a Team total.

Choose a Team name. Decide if you want to start your Team online or offline:

Each year’s Support-A-Walk is a separate or new event for fundraising purposes. So, any past fundraising page you had will no longer be active; you need to start a new one for this year.

But, you’re welcome to use the same Team name year after year.

Yes! It's simple:
  • Login to your FrontStream account here.
  • You will see "You are not currently on a team. Join or create a team."
  • Click that link, then follow the steps to either start a new team or join an existing team.

Plan a fun activity together: Remember: The first three letters of fundraising are FUN! It’s easy to increase your donation total with a fun event: an online tag sale... a friends and family selfie contest... a ZOOM party - the possibilities are endless. We’re happy to help with tips and ideas.

Tribute Message Signs: Tribute Messages are 20″ X 12″ signs we’ll display on our website and social media pages for thousands to see. They can celebrate or remember a loved one, or share a message of support from an individual or business. View a sample sign. Team members can purchase signs or ask others to do so. Order a Tribute Message sign.

Walk as a Team: If you can, make plans to walk together. If you can't all be in the same place, you can all walk at the same time, wherever you are.

Create Team tee-shirts and a Team banner:  We invite you to create your OWN Walk tee shirts. Be as simple or creative as you'd like. Express your reasons for walking. It’s a wonderful opportunity to show your community and Team spirit!

Share photos of your Team: We want to see photos of your Team! If you have Team tee-shirts or a Team banner, we want to see those too! Send your photos to walk@supportconnection.org.

Ray of Hope Champions: Meet special fundraising goals before October 3, 2021 and earn Ray of Hope status for your Team. Learn how you can be a Champion!

Team Spirit Awards: Earn an award for having great Team Spirit!

Asking for Donations: If you’re not sure what to say, look at our sample email.

Matching Gifts: Many companies will match contributions made by their employees. This can double or even triple your donation! Ask your employer if they have a matching gift program. Support Connection, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization.
