YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. --  Support Connection, Inc. has announced the launch of a new “Team Spirit” campaign for its 20th Anniversary Support-A-Walk for breast and ovarian cancer, which will take place on Sunday, Oct. 5.

The event will ve at FDR Park, Route 202, Yorktown Heights.

The Support-A-Walk is held to bring attention to the needs of people affected by breast and ovarian cancer, and to raise funds for Support Connection’s free support services for those living with these diseases. People across the Hudson Valley and beyond utilize Support Connection’s free services.

The Team Spirit Campaign encourages friends, family members, co-workers, neighbors to “team up” for the Walk. Teams are groups of people who decide to participate in the Support-A-Walk together. From the beginning, teams have played a crucial role in the event’s success. Teams also symbolize the meaning and impact of the day.

Team activities can include seeking donations on behalf of the team, planning fund-raising events, inviting others to participate, spreading the word about the walk. Many of these activities can be done even if team members can’t attend. Teams that do attend together often create signs or banners to carry while they walk, and gather for team photos as part of the morning’s festivities.

This year, Team Spirit Awards will be presented. There are awards for: the top three teams for fund-raising; the top three teams for number of team members; the most creative team sign or banner.

For details on how to qualify for the Team Spirit Awards, contact Support Connection at 914-962-6402 or walk@supportconnection.org.

In addition, registration and donations are now being accepted for the Support-A-Walk. To learn more, visit www.supportconnection.org.
