On August 8th we will be stringing a bra chain of over 500 bras (yes 500!!) across the Walnut Street bridge in Harrisburg. Bras will be donated by the public and marched across the bridge in a chain held by corporate and individual fundraising teams.
Festivities will start on City Island where registered participants will gather on centerfield at the City Islanders Ladies Night soccer game for the Kickoff Ceremony. After the Kickoff Ceremony participants will begin the bra parade from the City Islanders field and walk the chain down City Island and across the Walnut Street bridge. The bra chain parade will end with a Survivor March, followed by all participants in the bra chain. The celebration will continue at the Post-Party at Sawyers where registered participants will get complimentary beer from 8-10p (Post Party will be held at Susquehanna Ale House in the event of rain). NOTE: All ages are welcome to join Bras Across the Bridge festivities, however, the Post-Party is a 21 and over event.
This fundraising event will help raise money for our College Outreach Program, which provides FREE breast health education materials to college health centers nationwide.
