Support-A-Walk Overview

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.


Walk With Us, Wherever You Are

On Sunday, Oct. 3, 2021, 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 people nationwide can walk with us.


Updates on Walking at FDR State Park

As you know, the safety of our supporters is of utmost importance. So, in order to be mindful of ongoing COVID concerns, we are not planning for a large event at the park.

Can I Walk At FDR Park?

Yes! FDR Park is open. If you’d like, you can gather there with your trusted group of family and friends to walk on Oct. 3. A good place to meet is the grassy area near Parking Lot # 1, between 9 and 9:45 am. If you decide to Walk at the park, we ask everyone to practice social distancing among groups, wear masks when in close proximity to others and use hand sanitizer if needed.

Will Support Connection Be At The Park?

Yes! Some Support Connection representatives will be at the park by 9 am, in the area near Parking Lot # 1. For those who decide to walk at the park, we will have:

  • A Support-A-Walk Welcome Table, with volunteers to answer questions.
  • At 9:45 am, we’ll hold a brief opening ceremony on the walk path next to Parking Lot # 1.
  • At 10 am, we’ll start walking.
  • Some of our sponsors will have tables along the walk path. Please stop by and thank them for their support.
  • Since there will be no refreshment area this year, we welcome you to bring a picnic for your group to enjoy after you walk.
You Are Still Welcome to Walk Where You Are, Near and Far!

We are still excited for people to “Walk With Us, Wherever You Are!” We serve people nationwide, and people nationwide can walk with us.

You don’t need to be at the park to be part of the Walk. We proved last year that our supporters are “with” us no matter where they walk. So please feel free to walk in your own community: in your neighborhood… on a hiking trail… in a park near you… even on a treadmill!
