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…

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.
