03/10/2018 by Rebecca Toews

Thanks to our participants and sponsors, the Subway® Bedrace for Bridging presented by Cities 97 raised more than $113,000! The weather was perfect for 142 registered teams to race down Buck Hill’s tubing track on a covered queen-sized mattress. After 20 years, this event has raised more than $1 million for Bridging’s mission! The impact that this event has on our families is life-changing.
