Women in Heels and Bras Help Fight Breast Cancer

October means Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Saturday the YWCA and Encore Plus Breast Cancer out reach program hosted the Annual Bras for a Cause Stiletto race.
The race was held at Country Pines in Endicott. It was an all day event with food and music and even a bra decorating contest. Women could also get mammograms there from Lourdes Mission in Motion.

"Early detection has been proven to be the life saver. So our job is to get the word out and that's what we've been doing with Encore Plus Program," Carole Coppens, Event Chairperson said.

Encoure Plus is the YWCA's Breast and Cervical Cancer Health Outreach, Education and Advocacy Program. It helps uninsured or underinsured women access free breast and cervical cancer screenings.
