An Australia woman said she wants to create the world’s longest chain of bras to raise awareness of breast cancer and the need for research funding.
Leanne Martel, of Wyandra and the mother-of-two leading the effort, said she wants to beat the world record of 166,625 bras, set in Bundaberg, Australia and raise at least $1,600 each for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Chicks in Pink and Think Pink, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported Friday.
“It would be a good record to beat in such a small community,” Martel said. “Everyone is just getting behind me now which is really good.”
She said donated bras have been arriving from all over the country.
“I’ve got bras coming from the Gold Coast, Brisbane … everyone is supporting this cause,” she said. “Travelers that are going through at the moment are just stopping and they’ll put a bra on the fence.”
