Connective Issues - Winter 2020

LET’S GET TOGETHER! NEW FOR 2020 – VIRTUAL WALK FOR VICTORY We know connection is so valuable and many in our community are not able to travel to a Walk. But, “community” is not about living in a specific zip code; rather, it is a place where people feel a sense of belonging and it is frequently online. More than a dozen teams have already formed around the US in places like Idaho, West Virginia, Kentucky, Colorado, and South Carolina. International teams have already formed as well -- in Costa Rica, Canada, the UK, and Australia.

This year, teams and individuals can register for the Virtual Walk for Victory and begin encouraging friends and family to support them as we lead up to the official Walk day on Saturday, May 2, 2020! Check the details at or contact Senior Vice President of Development, Kim Huddleston at or 516-314-5610.
