About Beat the Bridge

The Nordstrom 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 4-mile walk, a 1-mile fun run, and the Diaper Derby for toddlers. Participants try to cross Seattle's University Bridge before it's raised during the race. Those who don't beat the bridge must wait, with a live band and prizes to pass the time. After a few minutes, the bridge lowers and everyone can finish the race. Nordstrom has partnered with JDRF to benefit T1D research since the first Beat the Bridge in 1983.
