Bras Across the Bridge!

As you all know October is full of many Breast Cancer awareness events, walks, donations, and support. I wanted to share with you some great pictures of one of our many bridges.

Yes those are bras and they are hanging from the Hot Metal Bridge...4000 bras to be exact, in all shapes and sizes and colors.

Our very own Pittsburgh-based American Eagle Outfitters came up with this idea to help spread awareness. They provided the bras and hung them from the bridge.


The bras hung around for about 3 weeks and I am happy to say I personally got to travel over the bridge while they were there. After the 3 weeks the bras were washed and donated to a woman's shelter.

Can't wait to see what they do next year!

On October 29th I walked with my nieces CRS-A, AMS, and Gi in the American Cancer Societies Make Strides To End Breast Cancer 5k walk. It was a better day for ducks but we had a wonderful time and the walk along the north shore was beautiful. Here are a few pictures.

Gi is warm and dry under the blanket!

The North Shore...

The finish line...

I can't wait to do it again next year.
