"Bras Across the Bridge" to benefit Francine's Friends

During Breast Cancer Awarenss month, WMEE, along with special sponsor Barbara's New Beginnings and IPFW, has created "Bras Across the Bridge" — a visual symbol of breast cancer awareness, hope, and survivors.

New and gently used bras will be used to form a giant chain of bras to span the St. Joe River at IPFW. Click here to find out more about donation locations and live broadcast schedules. This Sunday, October 17th at 1:00 pm, WMEE will do a special "Bra-Cast" at the Venderly Family Bridge at IPFW.

"We are very happy to be involved with women’s health issues, but particularly this one because of how it has affected our staff directly and family members of staff as well," explained WMEE's Becki Kelley, also a cancer survivor. 

Barbara's New Beginnings has been a loyal supporter of Francine's Friends since the beginning and we are honored that they would choose us to benefit.

Please help support this promotion of the health of women in our community and awareness for the importance of early detection in the fight against breast cancer!
