WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- More than 500 participants have already signed up to take part in the Northwell Health Walk to help raise funds for two important local health programs on Sunday, May 21.
Sponsored by Northern Westchester Hospital and Phelps Hospital, funds raised through the two-mile walk will be used to help support:
