Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's 32nd Annual Nordstrom Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes
Nordstrom Beat the Bridge supports JDRF and its mission to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes. The event includes an 8K race, a four-mile walk, a one-mile fun run and the Diaper Derby for doddlers. Participants in the 8K race try to make it across the University Bridge before it's raised. The event consistently attracts more than 10,000 participants, and this year's goal is to raise more than $1.6 million. Those who raise $200 or more qualify to receive Nordstrom gift cards as prizes.
