For the past two years, my teammates and I have carried bras on our backpacks for people or groups that have gone above and beyond the call to help in fund raising. As we do the walk, we have walkers and crew at the 3-Day sign the bras and then we give them to our fund raising super stars as a small token of thanks for all they have done.
We plan to continue this tradition in the years to come, but I’m adding something that I hope will work out this year. I want to do a bra for someone that breast cancer has directly touched. Maybe they have just been diagnosed, maybe they are going through chemo right now or maybe they are in remission. That’s where you come in. Take a moment to nominate someone that you know to receive the 2010 Survivor Bra. I’ll take all of the suggestions and then at random select a person to receive it.
What happens next is that I will get their name embroidered on a pink bra and get people to donate $10 or more to sign it. My goal is to try and fit 500 signatures on the bra. This means that the bra will hopefully raise $5,000 that all goes to the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure. When I get to 500 signatures or as close as I can, I will present the bra to the selected person. This is just our way of saying, “We want you to be a survivor and to continue being a survivor.”
Take a minute to fill out the form below of someone you think needs the survivor bra. I will make the selection on January 14th.
Nominations for the 2010 Survivor Bra have been closed. Stay tuned for the 2011 Survivor Bra to make your nomination!
