YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. -- Support Connection announced the launch of the 2015 “Team Spirit” campaign this Tuesday, for their 21st Annual Support-A-Walk for Breast and Ovarian Cancer which will be held in Yorktown Heights in early October.

Support Connection is a not-for-profit organization that provides free, confidential support services and programs to people affected by breast and ovarian cancer.

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.

The Team Spirit Campaign encourages friends, family members, co-workers, neighbors to “team up” for the Support-A-Walk. 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 walk 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.
