Bras Across the Bridge

The ninth annual Bras Across the Bridge raised more than $36,000 for Baptist Health Care Foundation’s Mammogram Fund – a $10,000 increase from last year’s event.

The Mammogram Fund provides mammograms to women in our community who are not financially able to afford one on their own, as well as raises awareness and support for early detection. For every $100 raised through the Foundation, one mammogram can be provided to a woman in need.

Since the beginning of this program, mammogram 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.

More than 400 new bras were donated by Bras Across the Bridge participants. The Foundation will donate these bras to several local organizations that help women and girls in need.
