YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. -- Support Connection, Inc. announced the launch of the 2015 “Team Spirit” campaign for their 21st Annual Support-A-Walk for Breast and Ovarian Cancer, which will take place on Sunday, Oct. 4, 2015 at FDR Park, Route 202, Yorktown Heights, N.Y.

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 are helped by Support Connection’s counseling and other services.

Each year, thousands of people take part in this inspiring and uplifting community event. Participants of all ages complete a three-mile walk, often in honor of loved ones who are affected by breast and ovarian cancer. The Team Spirit Campaign encourages friends, family members, co-workers, neighbors to “team up” for the Support-A-Walk. Teams are groups of people who decide to participate in the walk together.

Team activities can include seeking donations, planning fundraising events, inviting others to participate, spreading the word about the walk. Attending the walk is not a requirement; many team activities can be done before the Wwlk from any location. 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.

To learn more about forming a walk team, visit supportconnection.org/support-a-walk-overview/form-or-join-a-team/ . Team Spirit Awards will be presented for the Top 3 Teams for fundraising; Top 3 Teams for number of team members; and the most creative team sign or banner.
