As part of 104.1 KRBE's month-long "Bras for a Cause" program to raise awareness and funds to fight breast cancer in Houston, the station created the "Bra Wall of Hope," which is composed of more than 1,500 bras donated by women across Houston and tied together with pink ribbons.

On Thursday, KRBE performed a live broadcast of the Roula & Ryan Show at the official unveiling of the wall, located in front of Memorial City Mall along I-10.

The temporary wall was erected in support of the Komen Foundation's Houston Chapter's Race For The Cure on Saturday. Thus far, nearly $1.4 million has been raised as part of the race. 

All funds raised for KRBE's "Bras for a Cause" program will go to Susan G. Komen Houston in hope of reaching the funding goal of 25,000 mammograms for at-risk and uninsured women and men as part of Komen Houston's 25th anniversary.

A portion of the Bra Wall of Hope will on display at the race.
