Local Organizations Join Together for 3rd Annual ‘Bras Across the Bridge’

Baptist Health Care, Cox Communications, Today’s Soft Rock 94.1, Laguna’s on Pensacola Beach, the Pensacola Interstate Fair and Magic 106.1 are teaming up to offer the third annual “Bras Across the Bridge” on Saturday, October 20, 8 a.m.Meet us on either side of the Bob Sikes Bridge. Breast cancer survivors, their loved ones and the community are invited to join together to increase breast cancer awareness.

Beginning at 7 a.m., participants can park and register at the AppRiver complex on Gulf Breeze Parkway or at Laguna’s on Portofino Boardwalk on Pensacola Beach. The first 500 participants will receive a pink “Bras Across the Bridge” T-shirt. Participation is $10 per person plus the donation of a new bra. The bras will be strung across the bridge as a show of awareness and support for breast cancer. After the event, the garments will be donated to local organizations that help women and girls in need. Funds raised will be donated to Baptist Health Care Foundation’s Mammogram Fund. 

According to the National Cancer Institute, more than 225,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed this year – nearly 40,000 will die. While there is no cure for breast cancer, early detection enables early treatment and increases chances for survival.
