How To’s: Walk With Us Wherever You Are

Annual Support-A-Walk ~ Sunday, October 4, 2020


Our Annual Support-A-Walk for Breast & Ovarian Cancer is held each year to bring attention to the needs of people living with breast and ovarian cancer, and to raise funds for our free support services such as counseling, support groups, educational and wellness programs.

Thousands of people participate in this uplifting community event. Family and friends come together to celebrate, support and remember loved ones. For individuals, businesses and organizations in the community, it is an opportunity to express encouragement and compassion for those living with breast and ovarian cancer. Everyone is welcome to participate in whatever way they can.


New This Year: Walk With Us, Wherever You Are

This year our Support-A-Walk has a new look: Even though we can’t gather by the thousands in the park, we can still walk together and work together for a common cause

So, on Sunday, Oct. 4, 2020, we will walk wherever we are, near and far, to raise funds for our free breast and ovarian cancer support services.

We are very excited! We serve people nationwide, and now people nationwide can walk with us. Our goal is to have people participating in every state in the nation!


Not sure how to get involved? It’s easy! Here are a few ideas for you:

Walk On Your Own or With Family and Friends

You can walk alone or invite your family and friends to walk with you. Where you walk, the distance you walk, and the amount of time you spend walking, are all up to you.

If you have family and friends in other places, they can walk wherever they are too!

Donate ~ Raise Funds

There is no minimum donation to participate. All donations are appreciated, no matter the amount. You can raise funds or donate whether or not you walk.

You can raise funds online, collect cash and checks, or both, on your own or as part of a Team.

Learn all about donating and raising funds.
