Yesterday we held the 4th Annual Panties Across the Bridge! It was another amazing year for such an inspirational event! We met people from all over. Women traveled from Somerset, KY and Louisville, KY from Northern Ohio to see the event. Survivors, Fighters and families of Angels walked the length of the bridge admiring the panties. The event made news on channels 5,9 and 12! We are really making a difference with gynecological cancer awareness! If we can encourage at least one woman to get a yearly screening we did our job! Ladies have you scheduled your yearly exam?
We had a health fair from 11am-3pm. We had several booths along the ramp leading to the bridge.
Thank you to all our vendors! We know it can be hot out there and you all did great!
At 4pm our live music began. A big thank you to The Fite family for running the PC system for all of our bands. You do an amazing job!
Kera lost her daughter to cervical cancer. Meganne was only 22. She said "Who knew this beast was growing inside her daughter?" She urges women everywhere she goes to keep current on their yearly exam. She doesn't want mothers and fathers having to stand next to decorated panties in memory of their daughters. Thanks Kera for a moving speech. Your such an inspiration thank you for sharing Meg's story.
On the count of 5 the ladies flipped the switch and we lit the Purple People Bridge teal for gynecological cancer awareness from Cincinnati to Newport- end to end!
We are so grateful for all that make this happen! Thank you all! We began this event in honor of Jaymie. To help women learn from Jaymie's situation so no one else would have to go through what she did. While this event is still about Jaymie, other women connect to this event as well. It encourages them. They find comfort and inspiration. They are educated. Thank you for connecting to our event. Thank you for helping us eliminate gynecological cancer related deaths.
We can't wait to see what the 5th Annual Panties Across the Bridge entails!
