Bras on Harrisburg boat raise money for people fighting breast cancer

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A boatload of bras was rolling down the Susquehanna River Thursday.

It is an effort to help people who are fighting breast cancer.

500 bras covered the Pride of the Susquehanna for the “Boatload of Bras” campaign.

The Pride of the Susquehanna, Bob 94.9, and Community Aid collected the bras over the past month.

“This is probably one of the craziest things we’ve ever done, it’s a lot of fun. It’s for the breast cancer coalition, it’s breast cancer awareness month and community aid is so generous. Everybody who donated bras, so generous,” said Nancy from Bob 94.9.

More than $10,000 was raised for the event.
