Country 105, Energy 99.7 and Merrett Home Hardware Building Centre have wrapped up the 8th Annual “Bras Around the Building” Campaign. With the support of the community, a total of 5,889 bras and counting were collected.
With the generous contribution of $1 per bra from Merrett Home Hardware Building Centre, along with other monetary donations from local businesses and individuals, the 2018 Bras Around the Building Campaign raised $11,922, which will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society for breast cancer research.
For the last four weeks, residents of Peterborough and The Kawarthas have been donating their gently used bras, and many took up collections from family and friends for this powerful campaign.
The bras will hang on the Country 105/Energy 99.7 building at 59 George St. N. until Monday, October 29th as a symbol of support for women battling breast cancer, to honour survivors and to remember those who have lost their battle.
