Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes

May 15
06:45 am - 11:00 am
Location: Seattle

The 34th Annual Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes will be Sunday, Mary 15th at Husky Stadium in Seattle.

The Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes is a fundraiser for JDRF, the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. The event consists of an 8K run and wheelchair race, a 3-mile walk, a 1-mile fun run, and the Diaper Derby for toddlers.

The event is called Beat the Bridge because the course travels over Seattle’s University Bridge, which is raised during the race. Participants try to cross the bridge before it is raised. Those who don't beat the bridge must wait, with a live band and entertainment, for the bridge to come back down. After a few minutes, the bridge lowers and everyone can finish the race.

Saturday, May 14, 2016: On-site Registration and Packet Pickup is strongly encouraged from Noon to 5:00 PM. Located in the west concourse of Husky Stadium.
