Everyone on the Isle of Man loves dressing up, especially when it comes to charitable causes.And April the 27th – 29th is a perfect excuse for just that!2018 is the 14th year of the Isle of Man Bra Dash. Having raised over £190,000 so far, the dashes raise money for Breast Cancer Now.The charity’s aim is that by 2050 anyone who develops breast cancer will live.

The purpose of the dashes are to not only raise money to fund the ongoing research being undertaken for breast cancer, but also to raise awareness of this devastating disease that claims the lives of far too many.

How many dashes are taking place?

There will be four dashes held across the Island this year, and we couldn’t encourage you enough to get involved!You can just turn up on the day, don a bra and dash, walk or stroll around the short routes.

Whether you’re cheering someone on, raising some money in the office, or just up for running through the street in a bra!
