What is Bras Across the Bridge?
The Bras Across the Bridge is an event hosted by the Feel Your Boobies Foundation to raise money to support its College Outreach Program, which provides FREE breast health education kits to heath centers nationwide. Last year the program worked with over 210 college health centers in 43 states.
In 2015, Bras Across the Bridge drew over 100 participants who helped parade a string of 900 bras centerfield at the City Islanders Pink Night game, then down City Island, across the Walnut Street Bridge and into Harrisburg. With the help of the participants and our sponsors, the event raised nearly $15,000 support our education programs.
We need your help to continue our efforts. More than likely you have a young woman in your life that you love. Perhaps you are a survivor, a caregiver or friend of a survivor, or you have a family member who's been impacted by breast cancer. Bras Across the Bridge is a great way to come together as a team, a family, or an individual to show your support of breast health education.
