Every year, there are 2 million bone breaks that are no accident but signs of osteoporosis. The 2Million2Many campaign’s "Cast Mountain" is a 12-foot tall by 12-foot wide installation which represents the 5,500 bone breaks due to osteoporosis that occur in the US every day. As part of the campaign, this jarring display is touring the country at various health professional and public events.
