Bras Across the Kaw

Posted in Uncategorized | 1 comment

More than 1,000 bras will be strung across the North Lawrence river bridge over the Kansas River Friday, October 15 starting at 2:00 p.m.  92.9 The Bull and 1320 KLWN Radio host Chris Merrill’s Bras Across the Kaw awareness campaign, now in its third year, hopes to honor those who have lost the battle with breast cancer, give hope to those still fighting, and encourage early detection for those who may not know they have the disease.  Many bras have personal messages written on them honoring or remembering a loved one.

Staff from KLWN 1320 AM, Lazer 105.9, 92.9 The Bull and Health Care Access Clinic will be on the bridge assembling the bras all afternoon.  The completion time is estimated to be 5:30 p.m. and the bras will remain on display until October 25.  Additional sponsors of the event include Plato’s Closet and Mango Tan.

Last year- an entire strand on one side of the river- about 500 bras- were stolen a few days before the display was to come down.  The culprits were never found.
