ANNUAL SUPPORT-A-WALK ~ SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2017
Our Annual Support-A-Walk for Breast & Ovarian Cancer is a 3-mile walkathon (rain or shine) at FDR State Park, Yorktown Heights, NY. It is held 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 come together for this uplifting community event. Family and friends come from near and far to celebrate, support and remember loved ones. Some make a day of it, picnicking after the Walk. 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.
This is why we need you!
The Support-A-Walk is our most important annual fundraiser. We rely on YOUR donations to sustain our breast and ovarian cancer support services and programs all year long.
We do NOT receive funds from: Relay for Life, the Avon Walk, Making Strides, Susan G. Komen, or any other national cancer organizations.
We ask anyone who attends the Walk to donate, whatever amount they can. Every donation makes a difference!
You can help no matter where you are!
Please help in any way you can! Whether you live near or far, you can donate and raise funds, on your own or with a Team. Even if you can’t attend the Walk, you can make a difference!

Anyone can help make the Support-A-Walk a success!
