Breast cancer survivors, their loved ones and the community are invited to join together to increase breast cancer awareness. The crowd will make its way across the bridge with bras strung together as a show of awareness and support for the fight against breast cancer. In addition, we will have an after-party celebration at The Grand Marlin that will include live music, activities, drink specials and a silent auction.
Funds raised will be donated to Baptist Health Care Foundation’s Mammogram Fund. This program provides mammograms to women who are not financially able to afford one on their own, as well as raises awareness and support for early detection. The 2017 event raised more than $25,000. Free screenings have been provided to 2,006 women.
As a result of these screenings, 391 women required additional testing, 47 required biopsies and 18 were diagnosed with breast cancer. This program would not be possible without the generous support of our donors.
The bras will be donated to local organizations that help women and girls in need.
