UPDATE: Tuesday, March 31 at 4:37 p.m.

It was a very difficult decision to cancel this year’s Slumberland Bedrace for Bridging. We greatly missed sharing your excitement and enthusiasm for this crazy event, and we appreciate the heartfelt notes of encouragement we have received from many of you. We hope you are all staying healthy at this time!

STILL- We have SO MUCH to celebrate! With your help we raised nearly $95,000 to advance our mission to FURNISH HOMES WITH HOPE. That is very remarkable and we are grateful for all your fundraising efforts!
