2019 Subway® Bedrace for Bridging

03/11/2019 by Rebecca Toews

The 2019 SUBWAY® Bedrace for Bridging was a HUGE Success!

Thanks to you, the Subway® Bedrace for Bridging presented by Cities 97.1 raised more than $120,000!

It was a crazy weather day and you all showed up with your enthusiasm! Please know that what you did today supports our mission, and you should be proud of your commitment to furnishing homes with hope!
Want to know how your time and energy helped? It helped clients like Jennifer, who has been waiting for a bed to finally have a good night’s sleep.

“I slept on my floor for 6 weeks before I got my amazing bed from you – all I had was a metal folding chair! Now I have an apartment fully furnished and it feels like home!”

– Jennifer S., Bridging Client December 2018

Hats off to all of our participants, sponsors, volunteers and supporters for making this event a great success. We couldn’t do it without you! Please take a moment to give us your feedback on this event!
