Latitude 32® Credit Union launches “Bras at the Branch”

CHARLESTON, SC (September 8, 2014)Latitude 32® Credit Union is teaming up with Star 99.7 FM for their first-ever “Bras At The Branch” during Breast Cancer Awareness month in October. The aim of the unique display of bras is to increase awareness of breast cancer and raise funds for research.

“With one in every eight women being diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, we know that many of our members, staff, and the community are affected by this issue in some way,” said Brad Rustin, CEO of Latitude 32 Credit Union.

Women are invited to bring a decorated bra in honor or in memory of a loved one along with a $10 donation to the Latitude 32 Credit Union branch at 1845 Sam Rittenberg Blvd. Charleston, SC between October 1st and October 24th, 2014. Prizes will be awarded for the best decorated bra, as judged by the staff of Latitude 32 Credit Union and Star 99.7 FM. All donations will go directly to Susan G. Komen Lowcountry.

People are also invited to show their support on the Latitude 32 D’s team at the Susan G. Komen Lowcountry Race for the Cure 5K. The race will be held on Saturday, October 18th at Family Circle Stadium on Daniel Island. A $33 entry fee covers race registration, and a custom Latitude 32 D’s team race shirt is only an additional $7. Non-team members also have the option to purchase a team shirt for $20. Proceeds from the cost of the team t-shirt will go to Susan G. Komen Lowcountry in the form of a team donation.

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series involves more than 1.5 million participants at 150 events on five continents annually.  It has raised more than $1.5 billion (as of 2010) while educating the public and honoring those affected by breast cancer. Seventy-five percent of funds raised from these 5K events stays in the local communities to fund education, screening, and treatment. The remaining amount funds research.
