More than 300 people gathered on Oct. 30 on the Goldey-Beacom College campus in Pike Creek and placed a record-breaking 1,549 bras on a giant breast cancer awareness ribbon. Results will be submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records.
On-air personality, Nancy Johnson, WSTW 93.7, kicked off the morning’s activities with a live broadcast to promote Bras for the Cause and Goldey-Beacom College’s 5-K race – both to raise awareness for breast cancer.
About 150 runners (a combination of GBC athletes, employees and guests) donned Halloween costumes to run the 5-K race and all proceeds will benefit the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition.
The morning was complete with the Dunkin Donuts truck, soup samples from Zoup, carnival games for students and many activities for supporters who stopped by to drop off bras.
Founded in 1886, the college offers graduate and undergraduate degrees with majors in psychology, economics, criminal justice, English, and all areas of business. Alumni come from 26 states and 66 nations.
