LOS ANGELES – Last week, “Hollywood’s Best” leading plastic surgeon, Dr Michael K. Newman and friends turned up the heat even more at Dockweiler Beach. It was a show of force for breast cancer survivors as donors and supporters gathered for Evelyn Calip’s annual Breast Friends Forever BRA run.
1000 participants for the event were encouraged to wear decorative bras for the BRA RUN ( which stands for Breast Reconstruction Awareness) which is intended to increase people’s knowledge regarding breast reconstruction options after breast cancer treatment.
The BRA walk/run began in 2013 during the five-year cancerversary for Evelyn, who founded the organization. This event symbolizes the importance of having access to breast reconstruction. Women, men, and pets were sporting various outfits and bras for the event with awards not only for completing the race but also for best costumes. Sponsors also included medical groups as well as fitness-focused companies, other activities included a 5k walk/run as well as a 14k run and a 14-mile bike ride to highlight 14 years of Evelyn being cancer free.
