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 nearly 90,000 local Twin Cities households, and reduces landfill space by 10 million pounds each year.

Ready. Set. Bedrace.
The Subway® Bedrace for Bridging, presented by Cities 97, is outrageous fun for a great cause! On Saturday, March 10, embrace our wintry season and help local families and individuals in need - join us as we race down Buck Hill and help Bridging furnish homes with hope!
Teams of four dress in fun costumes of their own making and race down Buck Hill's tubing slope on a covered queen-size mattress that Bridging provides. Yes, a REAL QUEEN-SIZED MATTRESS! (provided day of race) Hundreds of people race, while countless more cheer the teams on and watch the fun! Then dance the night away to live music after the race.
Your team could win great prizes for winning team, best costume, and most "Bucks for Bridging" raised!
Head to our website to view pictures, and learn more about this awesome event! All registration fees, donations and funds raised by teams directly support Bridging.
