It’s that time again! Time for the Wings of Karen 5K Bra Dash! As you’ve probably noticed, Wings of Karen is a charity very close to our hearts. We recently had an absolute blast raising $6242 for Wings of Karen! When we hosted the First Annual Hair BRA-Zaar! It was a fun evening benefitting Wings of Karen Breast Cancer research. Our talented students and Alumni did AMAZING hair and makeup looks on models wearing decorated bras. Models were Academy Students and Breast Cancer Survivors that WORKED the runway! Missed Hair BRA-Zaar? Read more/ see pictures here.
The decorated bras tied in with Wings of Karen’s huge annual fundraiser- their 5K Bra Dash! The Bra Dash will take take place on Sunday May 22nd, 2016 at Lake Wilderness Park– 22500 Southeast 248th Street, Maple Valley, WA. Registration/ Packet Pick Up Starts ay 8:15 AM. Participants are encouraged to wear a bra over their race day shirt and toss it triumphantly at the finish line, symbolizing the spirit needed to find a cure.
There aren’t many events quite like the Bra Dash. There is no real way to describe the sight of thousands of decorated bra-clad people of all ages and genders doing Zumba on a Sunday morning. It is an event that inspires hope.
The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) Mammovan will be at the event to make it convenient for you to complete your annual mammogram. The SCCA Mammovan is a customized, mobile breast imaging clinic bringing the latest technology in digital mammograms to you where you live or work. The average appointment time is about 15 minutes.
