Bras Across the River

Yesterday, in Manchester, NH, one of bridges crossing the Merrimack River was closed to traffic and opened to BRAS! It was for Bras Across the River, a celebration of life for survivors, support for those continuing the fight against breast cancer, and a remembrance of those who succumbed to the disease that strikes 1 in 8 women.

The Write Sisters have skewed those statistics--there are seven of us, and of the seven, three of us have had breast cancer! So, celebrations of life are important!

I attended Bras Across the River, and a few of the photos I took are posted below.

A pink ribbon on which survivors signed their names:

Some of the fabulous sponsors:

Awesome tee-shirts:

Her shirt reads, "Fight like a girl."

Lots of street art by NH Institute of Art students:

And bras, bras, and more bras!


If you'd like to see more photos, I'll be posting additional ones on my library blog, Kurious Kitty's Kurio Kabinet, tomorrow.

Important post, Diane. Well done!

Super photos and well-said.

Evidently the people Anthem hired to make their poster can't spell "challenge" though. ;)

Money doesn't necessarily guarantee spell-checking. Tee hee hee.
