On May 21, over 10,500 supporters came together at Husky Stadium to celebrate the 35th Annual Nordstrom Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes. Started in 1983 with a few hundred participants, Beat the Bridge has raised over $25 million since its inception. 2017 is proving to be its most successful year yet and is expected to reach its goal of $2.2 million.
JDRF is joined by its dedicated corporate partners, including Nordstrom, UPS, PACCAR, Kaiser Permanente, Brooks Running, Expeditors, Wells Fargo, Premera, Talking Rain, KING 5, Alaska Airlines, Greystar, PCC Natural Markets, and CallisonRTKL, in support of our mission of accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications.
Over 580 family, school and corporate teams, including MLS Rookie of the Year, Jordan Morris and Seattle Seahawk, Cliff Avril, invited their friends and networks to join them in supporting JDRF and Beat the Bridge. We cannot thank them enough!
