Mississippi town decorated with bras for breast cancer research

Posted: Updated:

Visitors in Moss Point, Miss. got a startling sight this weekend.

Thousands of bras in all kinds of shapes, sizes, colors and designs lined the bridge over the river in Moss Point.

It's all for a good cause. It's the 3rd annual "Bras Across the River" breast cancer walk to help raise awareness about the importance of early detection.

Becky Kilgore, who won this year's bra decoration contest, lost her sister to breast cancer. "She made her family very proud," says Kilgore, "just as proud as a peacock and she was always trying to help someone out and just be a real inspiration to our family."

The walk raised $7500. All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society to fund breast cancer research.
