On Aug. 10, the Feel Your Boobies Foundation will host its Fifth Annual Bras Across the Bridge event on City Island, Harrisburg. The Bras Across the Bridge is a fun event hosted by the Feel Your Boobies Foundation and is the main source of funding to support the foundation’s educational programming, which includes the College Outreach Program and the Minority Outreach Program, both of which provide free breast health education materials to women under 40 across the country. Since the event began in 2015, approximately $200,000 has been raised.
Pre-event festivities take place on City Island from 5-6:30 p.m. with check-in and registration closing at 6. Then at 7 p.m., a bra chain made of 100’s of donated bras will be stretched across the Walnut Street bridge by event participants and conclude with a Survivor March, where a group of survivors will lead the group across the bridge, followed by all bra chain participants. A Post-Party will be held at Arooga’s on 2nd Street in Harrisburg from 8-9 p.m., where all registered participants will enjoy buy one, get one free appetizers and toast to a job well done.
