Support Connection is pleased to announce the production of a new video that highlights how easy it is to donate and fundraise for their Annual Support-A-Walk for Breast and Ovarian Cancer, which will be on Oct. 2, 2016 at FDR State Park in Yorktown Heights.
The video was produced by Bill Powers of Powers PR Video, a firm specializing in telling client stories through carefully crafted words and stunning visuals. Bill is an Emmy Award-Nominated TV producer who has received numerous awards and commendations for his work. In addition, he is dedicated and well-respected community leader.
The 3-minute video features commentary from several individuals sharing their personal experiences. They explain how easy it is to help make the Support-A-Walk a success by donating or raising funds.
The Support-A-Walk is Support Connection’s most important fundraiser each year, with 89¢ of every dollar raised directly funding their free breast and ovarian cancer support services. Support Connection does not receive funds from any national cancer organizations including Relay for Life, Susan G. Komen, the Avon Walk or Making Strides. The year-round services Support Connection provides have helped thousands of people since the organization was founded in 1996.
GuideStar, which connects people and organizations with information on the programs and finances of more than 1.8 million IRS-recognized nonprofits, has designated Support Connection as a Silver-level GuideStar Exchange participant, demonstrating its commitment to transparency. In addition, Support Connection is a top-rated nonprofit on GreatNonprofits.com, the leading platform for community-sourced stories about nonprofits where ratings are based on reviews from those having personal experience with the organization.
Support Connection’s mission is to provide emotional, social and educational support services to women, their families and friends affected by breast and ovarian cancer. Services (all free of charge) include peer counseling, support groups, wellness and educational programs, referral and information services, and a toll-free cancer information and support hotline (800-532-4290.)
