Event Description

August 18, 2011 Updated Aug 18, 2011 at 10:44 AM EDT

This event focuses on fighting Breast Cancer with Awareness.
Ribbon cutting will commence at 4:30pm. Our first annual Stiletto race will begin at 5:30! All men and women are welcome to participate in the race. Bras will be hung from the bridge throughout the month of October to create awareness during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Come join our kick-off event!

ENCOREplus reaches out, educates and advocates for women in Broome and Tioga Counties; offering access to FREE Breast and Cervical Cancer Screenings at one of many local provider locations. Screenings are available to uninsured women 40 and over. Free transportation to and from screening appointments is made available as well. ENCOREplus works closely with local hospitals and the Cancer Services Program of Broome Tioga and Chenango to ensure all community women receive quality lifesaving screenings regardless of financial, educational or geographical barriers.

ENCOREplus encourages everyone to come support our cause. "Bras for a Cause" will include live music and Magic 101 will be on site! We will have vendors, food for sale by "Champs Chili Dogs", and much more! Prizes will be awarded to the top three Stiletto racers! Strap on your heels and race for the grand prize! No pre-registration necessary.

Pink bins will be throughout Broome County during the month of September to donate your new or gently used bras. Women are encouraged to donate to make the bridge display a success!
