Why 1,500 women walked the streets of New York in their bras


Last Saturday night, 1,500 men and women power-walked the streets of Manhattan in brightly colored bras (yes, the men wore them, too). It wasn’t the world’s largest hen party, but the American debut of the MoonWalk, an event created by the British charity Walk the Walk to raise money for breast cancer.

Well+Good was there to take part in the half-marathon (there’s a full marathon, as well). The festivities kicked off at 8:00 p.m. on Randall’s Island and the walk started at 10:30 p.m., which meant there were lots of glow sticks and reflective bra-bedazzling. Click here to view our slideshow of the super-fun looks created by various groups of friends walking together…

 These women on stilts were pre-party performers, not power walkers.



Nina Barough, pictured here, founded Walk the Walk after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997. She was smiling ear-to-ear at the huge success of the inaugural American event.

By 10:30 p.m. everyone was eager to start the power walk. Half-marathoners were expected to finish around 1:00 a.m. and full marathoners around 4:00 a.m.



Some of the power walkers put a designer’s amount of detail into their bespoke Maidenforms.

Men joined the walk in support of the cause, too.



Groups of friends were excited to make their Saturday night out a healthy one, and swap their heels for their running shoes.
