Race Day Schedule
Bridging, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving the greater Twin Cities, provides donated furniture and household goods to those transitioning out of homelessness and poverty. Bridging gives hope – and for many – a leap toward financial stability for the first time. With locations in Roseville and Bloomington, Bridging is driven by volunteers and donations of basic home essential items from the community.
Since 1987, Bridging has served more than 90,000 local Twin Cities households, and reduces landfill space by 10 million pounds each year.
Join us for Outrageous Winter Fun to Support a Great Cause!
On Saturday, March 9, you and three of your closest friends can dress in fun costumes and race down Buck Hill on a real queen-sized mattress, provided by Bridging! When you register for this event, not only will you have a blast, you will also help local families and individuals in need. All registration fees, donations, and funds raised by teams directly support Bridging. Hundreds of people race, while countless more cheer the teams on and watch the fun! Take a moment to learn more about this extraordinary experience.
Register today so you can be a part of the success story in 2019! The impact this event has on our families is life-changing.
