2022 Support-A-Walk Recap

What a wonderful day filled with inspiration, hope, gratitude, and a community of support! On Sunday, October 2, 2022, people near and far participated in our Annual Support-A-Walk. Each year, our Walk is held to bring attention to the challenges and needs of people living with breast, ovarian, and gynecological cancer and to raise funds for our FREE, year-round counseling and other support services for those affected by these diseases.

We are very grateful to everyone who participated: walkers… teams… fundraisers… sponsors…. donors… volunteers … everyone who helped make this day a success. Most of all: thank you to the many people whose lives have been affected by breast, ovarian,and gynecological cancer for sharing your day with us. YOU are the reason we do what we do. And to all of our supporters, know that we can’t do what we do without you!
