BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Dressed in T-shirts, tank-tops, and sports bras, hundreds laced up Sunday for the fifth annual Bra Run, an event that promotes feeling comfortable in your own skin when hitting the pavement.
The run is hosted by TrailBlazHers Run Co., an all-woman running group based out of Boston, organized by local women of color. Lindsey Thorne-Bingham, a leader of the organization, says the organization is about taking up space in the local running community.
"Black and brown women, and women of all colors, but really for BIPOC women, to be seen, to be felt, to be welcomed in the running community," she said.
As the runners made their three mile trek through Boston, their presence was strong.
"We need to show up for ourselves, but in showing up for ourselves, we're showing up for someone else." said Thorne-Bingham. "We're showing up for that person who thinks 'I can't,' because they can."
