In 2020, the Nordstrom Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes went virtual in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. With JDRF & Nordstrom’s continued commitment to the health and safety of the community, the 2021 Beat the Bridge will once again, be virtual! On the morning of Sunday, May 16th, instead of gathering at Husky Stadium, we encourage everyone to run, walk, hop, or skip wherever they are. Last year we saw how the community rallied and beat bridges in their neighborhoods and raised over $1 Million for T1D. To make it another successful year, we need your help– here are some easy steps to get you started!
Step 1: Register! Online registration is now open at www.beatthebridge.org. Early Bird rates (through March 10) of $25 per participant include a technical running shirt (2021 only), race bib, and access to JDRF’s plethora of fundraising and community building tools.
Step 2: Grab some Sparkling Ice! Thank you to long-standing Beat the Bridge supporter, Sparkling Ice, for including JDRF in their Giving & Sharing Campaign. Before heading to the grocery store, add two 12-packs of Sparkling Ice’s Giving and Sharing-themed products to your list. When you get home, visit here to learn how to register your receipt, select “JDRF” as your charity partner, and Sparkling Ice will then donate $1 to support life-saving T1D research. Thank you, Sparkling Ice for your many years of support!
That’s it! Just two simple steps to get you on your way to supporting the Nordstrom Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes! Thank you for remaining committed to turning Type One into Type None!
