Feel Your Boobies' annual event

Bras Across the Bridge raises almost $40,000


The third annual Bras Across the Bridge event hosted by the Feel Your Boobies Foundation was held Saturday, Aug. 12 in Harrisburg.

Proceeds from the support the organization’s College Outreach Program, which provides free breast health education kits to heath centers nationwide. Since 2012, the program has worked with more than 500 colleges to ensure breast health programming is provided to students.

In 2016, Bras Across the Bridge had more than 200 participants who paraded about 1,400 bras at the City Islanders Pink Night game, then down City Island, across the Walnut Street Bridge and into Harrisburg.

The number of participants in 2017 was not available, but the event’s website said almost $40,000 was raised this year.
