Bras Around YOUR Building 2020
For the past 10 years, during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Pure Country 105 and Energy 99.7 have organized Bras Around the Building to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society to change the future of breast cancer by funding ground-breaking breast cancer research and support programs for the 1 in 8 Canadian women expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. To date, Bras Around the Building has raised over $105,000.00!
Unfortunately, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have extensive impacts on people across Canada and around the world, we are unable to collect bras this year but realize the importance of continuing to raise funds. The Canadian Cancer Society anticipates an $80M shortfall due to the pandemic, so funds raised at events like Bras Around the Building are even more important this year.
We’re excited to share that our dedicated organizing committee has been working hard to create a variation of the October Bras campaign called Bras Around YOUR Building
We are thrilled to announce that Merrett Home Hardware Building Centre is joining us once again to support this campaign by matching all monetary donations up to $7,000 total!
