Walk Updates

Annual Support-A-Walk ~ Sunday, October 3, 2021

Walk With Us, Wherever You Are


The Support-A-Walk is our most important annual fundraiser. We rely on YOUR donations to sustain our free breast and ovarian cancer support services. We do NOT receive funds from Relay for Life, Making Strides, American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen, or any other national cancer group.

We ask anyone who participates in the Walk to donate whatever amount they can. EVERY donation makes a difference!


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. No matter where you live, you can join us as we all work together for a common cause!

Walk Where You Are, Near or Far

Once again this year, our theme for the Support-A-Walk is “Walk With Us, Wherever You Are.” Even if we find out we can hold a gathering at the park, you are STILL welcome to walk where you are, near or far, to participate and raise funds. We serve people nationwide, and we welcome people nationwide to walk with us. No matter where you live, you can make a difference by donating and raising funds for the Walk!

The Support-A-Walk is critically important to us, because the funds raised help sustain our free, year-round breast and ovarian cancer support services.

We want to know your reasons for walking and where you will walk! Download and print our sign (or make your own), take a photo of yourself with your sign, and send it to us at walk@supportconnection.org. We’ll share the photos on our social media pages along with our hashtags #WhyIWalk and #WalkWithUsWhereverYouAre. We can’t wait to see all of you!

Last year, many of our supporters shared with us why and where they walked. They all raised funds too. Read their inspiring stories!


Download and Print our Signs

No matter where you walk, we invite you to use our signs to express your enthusiasm and reasons for participating. Download and print our signs, then fill them in with your personal reasons. We welcome you to send us photos too! Send to walk@supportconnection.org.


T-Shirt and Banner Contests

Show your enthusiasm, share your reasons for walking, and have fun with our Walk contests!

  • T-shirt Contest: Create your own Walk t-shirts. They can be homemade or from a company of your choosing. T-shirt contest flyer.
  • Banner Contest: Show your creativity and share your message by making a banner or sign to carry when you walk. Banner contest flyer.

After you’ve made your shirts and your banners or signs, send us a photo: walk@supportconnection.org. We’ll announce the contest winners on social media and in a local newspaper.

The deadline for both contests is Oct. 5, but no need to wait until then! Send your photos as soon as you have them and we’ll share on our Facebook and Instagram pages. (With your permission, of course!)
