Several months ago we shared with you the story of Casting for Recovery, an organization whose goal is to help breast cancer survivors recover, both physically and emotionally, through the unique benefits of fly-fishing…a sport which uses just those muscles most affected by breast cancer surgery. We told you about the Alaska chapter of CFR and how we offered them a matching grant so that they could hold their fly-fishing retreat for breast cancer survivors this past July.
We were surely impressed with the Alaska women-they completed our challenge and then some, and went on to have a successful retreat. Well–we recently received word of one of their new fund-raisers and we could not help but share it with you.
"Foundations for Recovery," is a truly special collection of bras that have been "artistically interpreted" by 22 local artists. In addition to raising awareness of Casting for Recovery, a silent auction will be held to raise funds for the Alaska group’s coming retreats.
The picture above is one of the bras being auctioned, and…yes, you guessed correctly–it is entitled, "Training Bra"! (check out the wheels!)
I knew the Alaska group was special when I worked with them…I just didn’t know the bounds of their creativity!
