3000 Bras for Breast Cancer

September 28, 2008

There is an interesting event in support of breast cancer research taking place in Kelowna, BC Canada this week. 


A local radio station is planning on stringing thousands of bras across the length of the new William Bennett Bridge which is over a kilometer in length.


Andy James of Andy & TJ in the Morning, 101.5 Silk FM indicates it will take “an astounding 3,000 bras to accomplish the record attempt”. Organizers will be holding a “Bra Blitz” at Tim Horton‘s and if you bring in your old bras, you will become eligible to win front row tickets to see Sheryl Crow, who also has survived the disease.


101.5 Silk FM holds the record for displaying bras along the length of the old floating bridge which was shorter than the new bridge.





  1. Hi there,
    I’m writing to you from Ireland and we too are attempting a world record bra chain of 120,000 bras covering a distance of 72 miles. I wish you the best of luck with your endeavor as I know only too well how difficult it is to collect the amount you need. I was wondering when you reach your target and break the record, would you be interested in donating your bras to our cause? It would be great. We have between 40 and 50,000 collected so far but we are aiming to do this in November so all the help we can get would be really appreciated. Agan the best of luck – its for a great cause!,
    Kind regards,
    Louise Killeen

  2. Hi Louise, I will send your request to the organizers and see what can be done.

    Good luck,

  3. They reached their goal here in Kelowna.They had over 3,000 bras donated which spanned atotal of 3 km up and down both sides of the bridge. The Run for the Cure is tomorrow where they hope to raise $400,000 for breast cancer awareness, research and hopefully a cure.
