STAR 101.5 Kent and Alan Morning Show Producer, Leonard Barokas took to the sky for the annual flight with bras for Bras Across Lake Washington, presented by Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. The annual event helps kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
Barokas and the bras took flight via parasail on a crisp morning Sept. 24 from the Leschi. Barokas towed a line adorned with bras, donated and collected by STAR 101.5 listeners, near the 520 and I-90 bridges. The goal of the spectacle is to help raise awareness about Breast Cancer and remind people of the importance of early detection through regular self- examinations and mammograms.
Barokas’ flight was dedicated to all those affected by breast cancer including those currently fighting the battle against the disease, survivors and those who have lost the battle. After the flight, all the bras collected were donated to the local YWCA Women’s Shelter.
