MOSS POINT, Miss. – Singing River FCU is asking women across the Gulf Coast to join the fight against breast cancer by donating a bra to the “Bras Across the River” event.
The credit union will donate $1 to breast cancer research for every bra donated. The fundraising event is held in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Last year, more than 4,500 brassieres spanned the Mississippi 613 Bridge, and a crowd of walked along the line of bras that stretched the full length of the bridge. “This year our goal is 6,000 bras, and we’re confident we’ll reach it. We also want to inspire hope in the thousands of Mississippians who face breast cancer each year,” said Jimmy Smith, president of the $165-million credit union.
Bras must be donated by Oct. 15.
